Mayflower Marathon Food Drive Breaks Record

Hampton Roads turned out in a big way to support families in need – and set a record in the process.

From Friday morning through 3 p.m. Sunday, FM99 and 106.9 the Fox held their 20th annual Mayflower Marathon. The around the clock food drive benefits the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank and the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.

The radio stations Marketing Director Sonja Morrell reports enough food was collected for a record 652,000 meals! Last year was a record setting year: 621,000 meals collected.
