The Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia & The Red Cross need your help!

Times are tough, donations are down and people in need of help are numerous. Food banks are experiencing a critical shortage of supplies as donations drop and demand for free and discounted food continues to soar. The Virginia Beach Christmas Market holds a major food drive each year benefiting the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia by offering $1 off admission to attendees donating cans of non-perishable food. Last year over 5,000 pounds of food was collected during the 3-day event. Let's break a record this year!

We will also be offering free admission to anyone that donates blood to the Red Cross. They will be on site all 3 days from 9am. - 3pm.
