LA VILLA Restaurant, Lynchburg VA
An authentic Italian experience!

Often when a group of children are fed in this type of program, lunch becomes mundane and less than exciting.  When the children found out they would be having a ‘Pizza Party’ for lunch with pizza from La Villa, they were thrilled!!!

Since this lunch is simply not in the budget of a nonprofit organization, it was quite a treat for everyone.
We are deeply grateful for your donation of 18 extra large pizzas to our 3 sites!  This made for many smiles and full bellies!
Our warmest thanks to Michele and his staff at La Villa for their amazing generosity.

In Italy, dining is more than eating.  It is an time to connect with others over a good meal and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.  Michele DiGiovanni, the owner/proprietor of La Villa of Lynchburg, Virginia understands this well.  He brings the passion of Italy to life in his food.  Our area is lucky to have an authentic Italian restaurant such as La Villa

When speaking with Michele, it is evident his other passion is giving back to the community.  He has sponsored many organizations, primarily those involving children.  This generosity and love for children is a trademark of his home country, and evident in his personality.

This summer at the Harvest Outreach Center, we are providing programming to as many as 75 children.  
Last year, the government funded lunch program that we accessed came to an end.  In our rural area, there were no other programs of this type.  Thus, we were left with the responsibility of feeding all of the children with our own resources.
