September 17 - October 1

As part of the Montgomery County welcome to Pope Francis during his 2015 visit, the VFTCB established a food drive in his name, to be held annually each September. The 2016 edition is targeting an increased yield for the county's hunger outreach program, setting a goal of 1,776 pounds of food collected countywide.
