  NSU Cares 2013:
  Governor's Bowl Food and Fund Drive

Did you know that Virginia food banks distributed 13.4 million meals last year?
Yet, Hampton Roads area residents continue to struggle with hunger as the effects of the recession linger.

We need YOUR support to help lead the effort to eliminate hunger in our community. Donate and participate in the Governor’s Bowl, this year’s state-wide Food and Fund Drive competition.

This Food and Fund Drive runs from May 27 — July 4, and Norfolk State University is participating in this effort. Help us help others by using one of the following methods to donate and participate:

1.  Place your food items in one of the food bins at one of the following locations
     on campus by July 17:
