LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One of the region's largest churches is collecting food for area food banks.
According to a news release, Louisville-based Southeast Christian Church is holding an urgent needs food drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 24, and Monday, April 27.
"Area food banks continue to face shortages due to an increase in need but a decrease in donations due to economic repercussions from COVID-19," the news release states. "Southeast is asking everyone to donate in-date, non-perishable food items."
Needed food items include:
- Peanut butter
- Pasta and pasta sauce
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned meat
- Canned vegetables and fruit
- Dry breakfast items
- Any other in-date, non-perishable foods
In an effort to follow social distancing guidelines, donors will remain in their vehicles and pop their trunks so that gloved volunteers can remove the food items, place a donation receipt inside and close the trunk.
Volunteers will also place a prayer card inside the vehicle encouraging prayer for health care workers, community leaders, residents and nursing home staff.
Anyone needing prayer can text PRAYER to 733-733.
Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (including fever, cough and shortness of breath) or who lives in a home with someone experiencing symptoms is asked to keep their goods for personal use.
The donations may be dropped off at any of the following Southeast campuses:
