12th Annual RVA French Food Festival
- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
6 people are interested
The RVA French Food Festival began in 2009, as a fundraiser for the Little Sisters of the Poor, a local non-profit serving Virginia’s elderly poor. The festival highlights French culture, food, music, and wine, all while raising money for a wonderful cause. From a Parisian marketplace featuring local vendors, to entertainment from fantastic musicians and even local favorite Jonathan the Juggler, to a dish of Chef Paul’s Boeuf Bourguignon or Chef Sean’s Gumbo Ya Ya, it is a festival you DON’T want to miss. In 2015, the festival added 6 fantastic new local chefs to the line-up, and after the success of a Friday night preview event in 2016, we added Friday night to the event schedule permanently! WE HAVE TONS OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR VOLUNTEERS TO GET INVOLVED--VISIT WWW.LITTLESISTERSOFTHEPOOR.VOLUNTEERHUB.COM TO SIGN UP!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

Continuing the work of Saint Jeanne Jugan, our MISSION is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.
The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of Roman Catholic women religious founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, we serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world. Our VISION is to contribute to the Culture of Life by nurturing communities where each person is valued, the solidarity of the human family and the wisdom of age are celebrated, and the compassionate love of Christ is shared with all.
