RICHMOND, Va. -- Food insecurity is a tough reality for many Central Virginians, and even more so since the pandemic began.

Since March, the Richmond-based non-profit, BridgingRVA, has been delivering free groceries through their “Drop, Knock and Leave” program serving more than 10,000 people so far.

Their 5th annual Christmas Day sit-down dinner last year drew about 1400 people to Temple Beth Ahabah.

Because of the pandemic, they can’t host that gathering this year. So, the organzation has committed to delivering about 2,000 individually wrapped meals to a growing list of our local neighbors.

Volunteers will pack the meals and fan out across the area, delivering those meals on Christmas Day.

As part of our Month of Giving, CBS 6 anchor Cheryl Miller reached out to BridgingRVA’s co-founder, Lee Ann Sawyer to make a donation to help with the food distribution this year and help get the word out about their ongoing service to our community.

CBS 6 Gives is assisted by Virginia Credit Union in helping spread joy and a helping hand in our community this holiday season.
