Lately, we’ve all been dealing with an unprecedented event that has disrupted the lives of everyone around the globe. Jody’s Popcorn knows how difficult this has been, especially to the selfless frontline heroes, working to lessen the impact on their communities as they put their health on the line to help those who need it most.
During the month of April, we committed to give away popcorn for every bag purchased by our customers. We will be delivering popcorn to the emergency responders at Virginia Beach Rescue Squad and the healthcare workers at CHKD Kings’ Daughters’ Hospital.
Last month, we donated 600 bags of popcorn to feed Virginia Beach school children that normally get free lunches at school, children who may otherwise go hungry. These uncertain times can be particularly difficult for school aged children, so Jody’s wanted to add a special treat to brighten their day.
Foodbanks are also in need— Our fearless leader and namesake, Jody personally delivered a carload of popcorn to the Foodbank at Jewish Family Services of Tidewater.
Another 1,200 bags were gifted to the COVID-19 Sewing Taskforce of Hampton Roads. We thought this pop-up volunteer group deserved a sweet treat for their charitable contributions in crafting masks for our community.
Our team is passionate about serving our community, and we hope our popcorn brings you some joy during these unprecedented times.
