Nearly 62,000 residents across the Peninsula must choose between food and other critical needs. That’s why it’s so important for shipbuilders to support the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank during Newport News Shipbuilding’s annual Holiday Food Drive Nov. 7-18.

A list of most-needed items, a how-to guide and fundraising guidelines are available of MyNNS. Shipbuilders can support the food drive in the following ways:

  • Making online food purchases at
  • Making online monetary donations to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank.
  • Visiting to make a one-time credit card donation or a one-time or recurring payroll deduction.
  • Dropping off donations in weatherproof collection containers at gates.


Collection boxes will be available for pickup 24/7 at Bldg. 103 (Southeast Bay Door) beginning Monday, Oct. 24. Boxes for outlying buildings will be available for pickup at NetCenter (Suite 176). Email [email protected] to make arrangements for pickup from NetCenter.
