The Norfolk Tides are part of a team holding a region-wide food drive sponsored by the Foodbanks of Southeastern Virginia, the Virginia Peninsula and Albemarle.

People are encouraged to drop off nonperishable items at Harbor Park on Wednesday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The food drive will go to help feed the hungry across Hampton Roads and Northeastern North Carolina.

The event’s also being staged to honor Beverly Hill, who was recently selected by ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to receive a new home.
