Virginia Colleges Set to Compete to Support Food Banks


Virginia Tech fans are ready for their team to compete against Virginia Commonwealth University at the 2013 Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic on Saturday, Dec. 21, at the Richmond Coliseum.

In the weeks leading up to the tournament, fans of the Rams and Hokies will compete to see who collects the most pounds of food.

The winner of the FeedMore food drive, which started today, will be announced during halftime.

The winner of a similar competition between Hampton University and James Madison University will be announced during halftime of their game, which also takes place at the Richmond Coliseum on Dec. 21.

Non-perishable food items also will be collected from Nov. 19-21 at a variety of sites on both campuses.

FeedMore is central Virginia's hunger-relief organization and serves the region's most vulnerable residents through the Central Virginia Food Bank, Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia, and the Community Kitchen.
