Mariners’ Museum Partners with Foodbank for Hunger Action Month
This September, The Mariners’ Museum and Park and the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank have partnered to support Hunger Action Month, a campaign that seeks to raise awareness and take action to end the hunger crisis across America. This is the third year the Museum has participated in Hunger Action Month.
The Mariners’ Museum and Park encourages its members and guests to “Fill the Boat!” A 12-foot boat has been placed near the Museum’s admission desk where guests can drop off their non-perishable food donations with a goal of filling up the boat all the way before the month’s end. The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank with also adorn the statues of Lions Bridge with orange ribbons in The Mariners’ Museum Park to promote awareness of September’s notable cause.
