20 20 25  INITIATIVE
20 DAYS
20% OFF ARTWORKS BY PARTCIPATING ARTISTS
25% OF SALES DONATED TO FEED MORE FUND

Page Bond Gallery is excited to announce three online events in support of our artists and the Feed More Fund. These events will begin on Monday, April 20th and run for 20 days until Sunday, May 9. We are grateful to our artists participating in this online initiative.

One of the strongest non-profit organizations in Richmond helping to feed people during the COVID 19 pandemic is the Feed More Fund. With multiple programs, they are able to feed seniors, children, those experiencing homelessness, and those who have been furloughed or have lost their jobs. We are especially interested in supporting the work that they do for children who are now out of school and don’t have access to school lunches. Here is more information from Feed More:

Feed More collects, prepares and distributes food to neighbors in need throughout Central Virginia. With a service area that stretches across 34 counties and cities, Feed More’s comprehensive programs and network of more than 270 agencies help ensure our communities have access to healthy meals year round. With 1 in 7, or more than 47,000 children in Central Virginia not receiving the necessary nutrition, Feed More’s program like the Kids Cafe, School Market and weekend Back Pack program help ensure kids and teens across our region have the healthy meals they need to learn, grow and thrive. For more information, please visit FeedMore.org.
