Big Art & Craft Show Collects Tons Of Food

Roanoke, VA - For the 26th year, the Craftsman Fall Classic Art and Craft Festival is teaming up with the local food bank to combat hunger.

It's the second largest food drive of the year for Feeding America Southwest Virginia.

That's because thousands will stop by the show this weekend and gain admission, using food!

Last year more than 25,000 lbs. of food was collected over the three day event.

"We need the food... it's right before the holidays and we want to make sure no one goes hungry during the holidays. So this is so important to the whole community and southwest Virginia," said Kitty Tabor from Feeding America Southwest Virginia.

The show runs through Sunday at the Roanoke Civic Center Special Events Center.
