Today the City of Richmond launched a new campaign, “Change for RVA Schools”, to promote and encourage dining in Richmond restaurants as a means to support funding for new school facilities in the city.
“The conditions in many of Richmond’s aging city schools detract from the positive learning environment our kids deserve,” said Mayor Levar Stoney. “Making a difference and creating positive change for our kids is deliciously simple; eat city food, help city schools.” See Levar Stoney’s YoutTube video here.
Every time someone visits a Richmond restaurant, 1.5% of their bill will go toward building revenue for new school facilities.
Residents will see ads on GRTC buses and messages posted via social media encouraging them to visit restaurants throughout the city.
