STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. – Students in Stafford County once again this year will come together to fight hunger in their communities.

More than 400 students will descend on Mountain View High School at 7 p.m. November 5 for the second annual Band Together to Fight Hunger. The show will feature band students from all five of Stafford’s high schools, and all proceeds from the show will benefit the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.

The price of admission to the show will be one non-perishable food item. Mountain View High School is located at 2135 Mountain View Road in Stafford.

More in a press release from Stafford County Public Schools:

Gates will open at 5:30 pm with a wide offering of concessions provided. Admission requires one non-perishable food item. Monetary donations will be accepted that evening or at fredfood.org

All proceeds will go to benefit the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank and provide food back to the hungry of our community.

This event is not designed simply to showcase musical talent, or highlight individual school band programs, but as a way to bring our Stafford Community together in the effort to raise awareness of the challenges in relation to food and hunger that 40 in 100 of citizens in Planning District 16 are facing daily.
