Virginia Wins Together, a community initiative made up of operators and locations that host Queen of Virginia Skill & Entertainment (QVS) games, is sponsoring a “Thanks and Giving” free meal giveaway on Thursday, December 17, for local residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The boxed meals, consisting of turkey with gravy, Mom’s Mac and Cheese, mashed potatoes, and seasonal vegetables, will be available for pickup only (no indoor dining) from 1:00-3:30pm, or as supplies last, outside Glory Days Grill at 9450 Lorton Market Street in Lorton, VA.

Virginia Wins Together is staging similar events across Virginia this fall and winter to address food insecurity during the pandemic. The first was in Norfolk on November 24 where organizers distributed 650 meals. A second is set for December 15 in Roanoke, and this distribution will be the third event.

“With so many negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, QVS, our operators, and customers want to help folks during these difficult times,” says QVS General Manager Jeanna Bouzek. “We are also thankful that we can partner with a great restaurant, Glory Days Grill, to support our community in a meaningful way this holiday season.”

On December 17, Glory Days Grill will prepare up to 600 “Ready to Heat” meals, one per person on a first come, first served basis, and distribute them from a dedicated pickup area adjacent to the restaurant. For safety reasons, motorists and passengers should stay in their cars and wear masks.

At the event, QVS will announce how much revenue it alone has generated since July for both Virginia’s COVID-19 Relief Fund and local governments from a special state tax on skill games. That levy, $1,200 per gaming terminal, totals millions of dollars statewide.
