Little Sisters of the Poor’s sixth annual RVA French Food Festival will be on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. In 2009, this festival was created to help the Little Sisters of the Poor raise funds to support the Virginia Elderly Poor. For over 138 years, Little Sisters of the Poor have provided the elderly poor with compassion and a place to call home.
Those of all ages are invited to come enjoy the festival from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm at 1503 Michael’s Road in Richmond. Free parking is available in the Forrest Office Park lots next door. All proceeds from this event will benefit the elderly poor who are lovingly cared for by the Little Sisters of the Poor.
