2018 FASWVA/Kroger Grocery Dash!

The Feeding America Southwest Virginia/Kroger Grocery Dash is BACK and better than ever!

Join us on #GivingTuesday, Tuesday, November 27, at 1 p.m. at the Ridgewood Farms Kroger store (1925 Electric Rd.) in Salem to watch three teams of your favorite local TV personalities dash to feed the hungry!

#GivingTuesday asks us to take a break from the Black Friday and Cyber Monday hype and think about giving back to our communities. That’s why local celebrities join FASWVA and Kroger to help raise awareness and fight hunger on this special day.

This year’s Grocery Dash teams are:

Team Living Local (WFXR) – Kianna Price and Jason Caterina


Team Daytime Blue Ridge (WSLS10) – Natalie Faunce and Brittany Flowers

Team 7@Four (WDBJ7) – Melissa Gaona and Brent Watts


Each team gets 60 seconds to dash Kroger’s aisles and collect as much non-perishable food as they can. The team with the highest total at checkout becomes the grocery dash champ!

And that’s not all! From now through dash day, YOU get to voice for your favorite “People’s Choice” team. Visit the Ridgewood Farms Kroger store and look for the donation bins just to the left inside the entrance. That’s where you can put your nonperishable food donation to “vote” for your favorite team. The team with the most food by weight wins the “People’s Choice” award!

So donate, then join us for the dash on November 27 at 1:00 p.m. Can’t make it to the dash? Text “feed6” to 41444 to donate and help feed the hungry this #GivingTuesday.
