Church hosts food giveaway
WARREN — Working with The Food Soldier Hunger Coalition, Monument of Faith C.O.G.I.C. will host a food giveaway in its parking lot at 2165 Highland Ave. SW from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The program will provide free boxes of farm fresh food, including meat, dairy and produce.
The Food Soldier Hunger Coalition is a Columbus-based organization that provides U.S. Department of Agriculture Farmers to Families food to those in need.
There are no income guidelines to receive one or two boxes of food per family. No identification is required.
Recipients just need to drive up to have the boxes of food loaded into their vehicles. Due to the pandemic, facial masks are required. Volunteers will be there to assist.
Local churches, daycare organizations, schools, homeless shelters and veteran organizations are encouraged to contact Councilwoman Cheryl Saffold at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330-399-8178 for bulk pick-up on distribution day. Volunteers also are needed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
