Burke & Herbert Bank Sponsors "Cuisine de Commerce" Food Drive

Alexandria, VA — As part of its ongoing commitment to the community and to help support Hunger Action Month, Burke & Herbert Bank is excited to be the Food Bank Sponsor of "Cuisine de Commerce" - a special luncheon event sponsored by the Prince William Chamber of Commerce.

As the Food Bank Sponsor, Burke & Herbert Bank is promoting a food drive to benefit local Prince William County-area food pantries, including NVFS/SERVE, ACTS and the Haymarket Regional Food Pantry. To contribute to the drive, donations of non-perishable items can be brought to any of the Bank's four Prince William County branches: 17119 Wayside Drive, Dumfries; 4605 Daisy Reid Avenue, Lake Ridge; 9103 Centreville Road, Manassas or 14008 Smoketown Road, Woodbridge. Donations will be accepted now through Monday, September 16.

"As a local community bank and the oldest bank in Virginia, we believe it is important to support the communities in which we do business,” said Terry Cole, Burke & Herbert Bank Senior Vice President. "The Food Bank is a great community cause and we are pleased to have our branches serve as locations for collection of food donations in conjunction with the Prince William Chamber," she said.

The Chamber is promoting the food drive as part of its Cuisine de Commerce luncheon, a taste-bud-tingling event that features the specialties of 15 local restaurants and caterers such as Carmello's/MONZA, Grafton Street Restaurant and A La Carte Catering & Event Design. The event will be held Tuesday, September 17, at the Continental Event Center, 9705 Liberia Avenue, in Manassas.
