Food drive a major success

Congratulations, Nationals fans.

After tallying the donations made during the 2011 Harris Teeter Food Drive held at Nationals Park last weekend, the results are in, and they're impressive.

The event, which helps the Capital Area Food Bank nourish thousands of children and families, resulted in an astounding 6,942 pounds of food. It was the most successful food drive at Nationals Park to date.

Your donations will help these ailing children receive the proper meals and nutrition they otherwise aren't afforded, particularly during the summer months when school meals aren't available.

I've always found food drives to be an amazing source of charity. It doesn't seem like much to bring a few cans of food or boxes of food, but as you can see, those few boxes and cans really add up and can make a major difference in the fight against hunger.
