Food Drive Nets Nearly 27,000 Pounds Of Food

Roanoke, VA - The Craftsman Fall Classic Art and Craft show outdid itself this weekend in Roanoke... surpassing last year's amazing total in food collected for the needy.

In all 26,738 pounds of food were collected during the three day event.

That is nearly 2,000 more than last year's total!

This is great news for Feeding America Southwest Virginia which says this food drive is their second biggest of the year, behind the Letter Carrier Food Drive which annually hauls in more than 40,000 pounds of food.
