According to the nation's largest hunger-relief organization, Feeding America, most food banks in our country are now serving over 55% more people than when the pandemic began. This creates a tremendous need for donations to help alleviate food insecurity driven by the Covid-19 crisis.
Pictona is, at its heart, a community center. As a community partner, we are vested in the success of our friends and neighbors. Pictona members really stepped up these last two weeks to fight hunger here in Volusia County. Organized by the Pictona Garden Club's Social Committee and led by Committee Chair, Ricki Stofsky, Pictona members donated over 200 food items to two outstanding food pantries: Community United Methodist Church and the Jewish Federation's Jerry Doliner Food Bank. These two organizations work tirelessly to provide food to our neighbors in need, and Pictona was proud to assist in these efforts with our Spring Food Drive.
Thank you, Pictona, for embracing the spirit of giving and for making a real difference in our community. Great job!
