Almost two dozen Eastern Shore restaurants will bring out their most tempting edibles on Sunday, April 17 from 3:00-6:00 pm at the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club to raise money for the Foodbank on the Eastern Shore, a branch of the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Taste of the Eastern Shore is the ultimate sampling of mouthwatering "tastes" of more that 20 of the Shore's culinary eateries. Presented by the Melfa Rotary Club, this annual event will be an exciting afternoon of food tasting featuring the appetizer, entree, and dessert specialties from some of the Shore's top restaurants and wineries.
"Our hungry neighbors up and down the Shore depend on our Foodbank," said Charmin Horton, Manager of the Eastern Shore branch. "The Rotary Club and all of the restaurants involved help us make it possible to distribute groceries to those who need it. I encourage everyone to come, eat, and support the Foodbank's mission of feeding the hungry."
The Foodbank on the Eastern Shore annually serves over 12,000 unduplicated local working individuals, children, and senior citizens struggling to put food on the table. It takes more than 900,000 pounds of donated and purchased food every year to keep them from going hungry. Money raised through ticket sales will go directly to the local Foodbank to help our neighbors in need.
A limited number of tickets are now on sale on and can be purchased from any Melfa Rotary member; at the Foodbank in Tasley; The Book Bin, Four Corner Plaza in Onley; Rayfield's Pharmacy in both Nassawadox and Cape Charles. Only 500 tickets will be sold. Early purchases are recommended. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door (if available). For more information and to purchase tickets, contact the Foodbank at 757-787-2557.
