Feed Venice with One Christ Won City
Every summer, the 6 food pantries in Venice, FL are in critical need of food so they can feed the children of our city who typically depend on the lunch they get at school. This need has been wonderfully met by the US Postal Service for many years. Last year, they were able to collect an outstanding 60,000 pounds of food to feed these families!
As it has been for many things - this year is another story.
The US Postal Service was forced to cancel this May's food drive due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This means not only has demand increased due to COVID-19 related job and income loss, but there is a shortage of food to the tune of over 60,000 pounds.
In response to this, One Christ Won City, a local 501(c)(3), will be operating a one-day food drive program called “Feed Venice.” This food drive will be COVID-19 conscious where volunteers will use masks and gloves to accept your donation as you stay in your vehicle, keeping everyone safe and the process simple! They have collaborated and united with our 6 local food pantries and 23 local churches to collect and sort the essential food items.
