ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — On Saturday, Aug. 9, Huddle Up Moms hosted its second annual “Taco Fest” at Elmwood Park. Hundreds of people throughout southwest Virginia flocked to the Star City to not only enjoy some good food but to support a good cause as well.

Huddle Up Moms (HUM) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, started in 2019 and is dedicated to serving moms throughout the region. Their goal is to fill in the gaps of education, support, and connection for moms and families in the area with programs that they offer.

The group’s marketing director, Whitney Good told WFXR their “Support Shop” gives out wipes, diapers, and other supplies to all moms around the area. No mom is left out, as the group caters to women of all incomes.

Good says they are thankful for the volunteers and vendors who signed up, as well as to the participants who came out.

“It’s amazing. As a mom myself, I know what it’s like to kind of feel like you need that village and not know where to go. As our group, Huddle Up Moms, we’re so thrilled to be able to fill those gaps for moms and seeing all these people come out to support us is just a dream come true,” said Good.

Another big thing that the group does is their “Moms Under Pressure” program. The group gives out blood pressure cuffs to pregnant moms to help them monitor and stay on top of their health during pregnancy. Good shared events like Taco Fest help them fund and continue their programs.
