Capital City Art & Craft Show to restock Kanawha City food pantry

Posted: Updated:

With many food pantries hurting, both from the derecho last summer and Hurricane Sandy's snowstorms, an annual event is going to help fill up one area pantry.

The Capital City Art and Craft Show will be collecting food for the Common Grounds Food Pantry in Kanawha City. The 45th annual event is encouraging attendees to bring nonperishable food items.

The Charleston Civic Center will play host to the fair, which starts Friday, Nov. 16, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. It continues Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and ends Sunday, Nov. 18, from noon to 6 p.m.

Attendees who bring food items will get a $1 coupon that can be used at any vendor booth at the event. The Capital City Art and Craft Show collects 2,000 pounds of food every year for food banks.

The price for admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children age 12 and under. Attendees that show their church bulletin Sunday will get a $1 discount on their ticket.
