RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Lobbyists in Virginia are spending less taking public officials out to eat at high-end restaurants, while lawmakers are more frequently covering the cost of eating out with their virtually unrestricted campaign accounts, according to data collected by the Virginia Public Access Project.

The shift comes after a gift scandal caused Virginia's elected officials to tighten the state's ethics rules.

Food Bank of Delaware

GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - The Food Bank of Delaware is preparing for some of its highest demand as school lets out for the summer.

The number of meals reportedly quadruples, for the Food Bank, throughout the First State during the summer.

The charity has a summer food service program to help fill the loss of meals that children receive at school. It serves day care centers, churches, camps and other sites where children need food.

To qualify, at least half the children at a site must qualify for free or reduced price school lunches.

The Lewes Presbyterian Church has opened its doors yesterday to around 15-hundred people to celebrate an early Thanksgiving.

There was nearly 600-pounds of turkey and more than 200 pies along with other fixings.

WBOC says that the meal was not only for feeding those who are in-need but to bring together the community.

There was also a take-out section to reach beyond the walls of the church and get the meals to others who could make it to the church.
