2 Hampton Roads college divisions obtain grant cash from No Child Hungry

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Two Hampton Roads school districts are receiving grants to expand their respective meal programs.

No Kid Hungry, a National Share Our Strength campaign, recently awarded $ 1.6 million in grants to 32 school departments and organizations.

“No Kid Hungry Virginia has given more than $ 4 million in grants across the Commonwealth since March 2020 to provide organizations with the resources they need to feed the communities,” said Sarah Steely, director of No Kid Hungry Virginia. “These could be supplies to safely transport groceries such as cool boxes and packages. It could be the transportation of vehicles and fuel. We’re here to hear what churches need to feed children. “

Steely says all school districts in the Commonwealth went really out of their way to help during the pandemic, especially Hampton Roads, but Suffolk and Virginia Beach public schools stood out.

“They are two great examples of school departments that looked at their existing model and said we want to do more and feed more children and we have the capacity to do so and we just need some support,” she said.

Suffolk Public Schools received a $ 50,000 grant for their Nourishing Our Neighbor mobile pantry, which Steely says was housed at a school but with the grant will be able to come out and have more access to others To have communities.

Virginia Beach received approximately $ 62,000 in grants.

“In Virginia Beach, they applied for funding for a mobile vehicle for their fleet to have more street meals in the coming months and summer to cover as much ground as possible,” she said.

Steely says they will use the money on nutrition education programs as well.

The principal says she was inspired and amazed by what was achieved during the pandemic and that food distribution didn’t stop when the school closed for the summer.

“Every year outside of the pandemic, summer is often the hungriest time of year for children with free and discounted meals. When the last bell rings, it means freedom from teachers and homework, but it is also a loss of those meals and the children do not know where to get their next meal, ”she said.

The ability to feed Virginia’s children is not only a health problem, but also an economic one, according to Steely. Steely says that one in eight children in the Commonwealth is not getting enough to eat.

And expanding their efforts with school districts and organizations is a lifeline not only for many students, but also for the future of Virginia.

“I literally get goosebumps when I talk about it. These children are the future of Virginia. You are our workforce. When children stay healthy and fed, they can do their best, thrive, and return to school to be active and ready to learn. It’s not just an investment in the children themselves, but in the community. I am so proud of these nutrition departments and organizations that are emerging stronger and working for the future of our children, ”she said.

Starvation Heroes! Foodbank challenges Hampton Roads organizations in meals, cash assortment competitors

For the fourth time, the Foodbank is holding its Hunger Heroes competition in southeast Virginia and the east coast. The demand for food is increasing in the region.

NORFOLK, VA. The Southeast Virginia Foodbank continues to confuse the question of how people can donate food and money to feed Hampton Roads neighbors struggling with food insecurity.

Hunger heroes is a food and fundraising contest open to local businesses, sports teams, clubs, youth groups, and families, starting on May 17th and culminating on June 11th.

Participants earn points for every pound of food donated or dollars raised, as well as other activities – such as volunteering, coordinating a food drive, posting on social media, and helping other teams register.

These points are added at the end of the competition and the organization with the most points wins.

Emma Inman, vice president of programs and development at the food bank, said Hampton Roads is no stranger to food security.

Foodbank expects food insecurity to increase by 17% for individuals and by 18% for children in southeast Virginia and the east coast in 2021 compared to 2019.

“We distributed about 17 million pounds of food at Hampton Roads during the pandemic. The average amount of food we distributed in the pre-pandemic years was typically 15 million,” Inman said. “This number only shows the great need in our region.”

Inman said it was a way to stir up excitement in a helpful effort, saying, “We want a little edge. This competition picks up on that spirit and puts everyone in a really friendly competition in order to be able to help our neighbors.”

At the end of the competition, the Foodbank will count donations and distribute them to families and individuals in Hampton Roads.

Inman said you still have time to check in before Monday. If you want to involve your organization, Click here.

Hampton Roads Chamber serving to leisure venues shuttered throughout COVID-19 pandemic

NORFOLK, VA. – For nearly four decades, Hugh Copeland has been the “Hugh” behind hooray players, providing community theater around Hampton Roads.

“People like to be here,” Copeland told News 3. “It’s one of the things that draws people to an area – all of the arts.”

Seats at the Perry Family Theater in Norfolk’s NEON District may be empty now, but in a couple of weeks the hooray players will greet people for their first indoor public performance since March 13, 2020.

“Friday the 13th,” said Copeland.

It was an unexpected curtain for Copeland’s theater company when they performed Disney’s “Moana Jr.” opened.

“We were on stage at 5.15pm that night and got microphone checks, people warmed up, and someone came on stage and said, ‘I’m very sorry. The mayor and the governor have closed the city. There won’t be a show tonight, ”said Copeland. “Of course we were devastated.”

And when the pandemic started, questions arose too.

“‘What are we going to do? How are we going to go on?'” He said.

Your group turned to Live streaming, Outdoor appearances, and assistance from the Hampton Roads Chamber for Federal Aid.

“It was more than important,” said Copeland. “It was the key element.”

Jim Carroll, CEO of the Small Business Development Center for Hampton Roadsworked with local entertainment venues during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Some have been closed since March and some have been partially opened,” Carroll told News 3.

Lately he’s been providing information on funds, including the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant.

Carroll said it is supposed to help pay some operating costs.

“It’s a complement to what’s already out there,” he said. “If you lose your people, you’ve lost your people, and we’re talking about entertainment venues. These are not ordinary people; These are individuals with specific skills. “

It is a resource that Copeland is studying.

“It doesn’t pay the cost of producing the show,” said Copeland. “What it does is make it possible to keep everyone involved.”

A resource to consider as you prepare for your next gig inside the walls of the Perry Family Theater.

“I’m pretty sure if we play for a full house at the Roper or Sandler Center we’ll have the energy,” said Copeland. “It will remind us of what our mission was: to provide theater for the community that is affordable for everyone.”
