Kings Dominion Donates 1,500 lbs of food to Feed More of Central Virginia

Since the announcement of the park’s closure for the 2020 season, our focus has shifted to the wellbeing of our associates and guests around the community. In these unprecedented times, it’s important now more than ever to lend a hand and help one another in the community. And, at Kings Dominion, the park has found a way to turn an unexpected situation into a way to help others.

This week, the park gathered surplus food and shelf-stable ingredients to donate more than 1,500 lbs of food to Feed More of Central Virginia. From chicken tenders and varieties of pasta to sauces and treats, some of the park staples are making their way to feed those in need.

Feed More collects, prepares and distributes food to those in need throughout Central Virginia including 29 counties and five cities. Their comprehensive programs and network of nearly 300 agencies help ensure communities have access to healthy meals year-round – nearly 24 million meals. Donations help their Agency Network and programs like the Kids Café, Meals on Wheels, the Weekend BackPack program, and Mobile Pantry which allow the organization to distribute food throughout the service area to those who need help.

Feed More’s Agency Network is comprised of food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and other nonprofits. These community-centric organizations help ensure the food Feed More collects and prepares is distributed to the neighbors in their communities who need it most.

"We have been a part of the Central Virginia community for 45 years, and we are proud to give back to the area we call home," Tony Johnson, Vice President and General Manager of Kings Dominion said. "While the park won't be making guests smile this season in our usual ways, we strive to provide smiles to those in need."

We truly can’t wait to welcome guests back to our park. Until then, we wish the Central Virginia and all of our guests good health and warm Kings Dominion memories.
