FeedCulver Gets $10,000 Grant from SoCalGas

 FeedCulver is pleased to announce the organization has received a $10,000 donation from Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), to support hunger relief efforts and local restaurants business in the Culver City area. The donation will provide 800 meals and help bring business to family-owned restaurants whose sales have been reduced due to COVID-19 restaurant guidelines.

“We are grateful to SoCalGas for its commitment to help fight hunger through their generous $10k donation,” said Colin Diaz, steering committee member of FeedCulver. “Their donation will enable us to continue to provide meals to those in our community facing hardship during this time of crisis.”

“Making food for FeedCulver has been the highlight of our week during the pandemic,” said Alan Schulman, Co-Owner and COO of Akasha Restaurant. “We love to make those meals! It’s all about being there for the community.”

SoCalGas’ donation is just one example of the utility’s dedication to supporting the health, safety, and wellness of our community. In addition to supporting FeedCulver, the utility has donated more than $2.5 million to nonprofit organizations to support the region’s workforce, feed the hungry, provide bill assistance to customers, and more as part of their COVID-19 recovery efforts.

“We applaud FeedCulver for their commitment to mobilize their resources and set partnerships with local community organizations to address critical needs in the community during this time,” said Mike Harriel, senior public affairs manager at SoCalGas. “SoCalGas is proud to support this program and we hope to inspire others to do so as well.”

FeedCulver is a grassroots initiative formed in response to COVID-19 in partnership with the Exchange Club of Culver City Charitable Foundation, Culver City Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Goran Eriksson, Councilmember Thomas Small, and members of the Downtown Business Association. Since its launch in April, the program has grown from serving approximately 70 meals to 160 meals daily. To date, the program has served more than 15,000 meals with the help of volunteers and community partners.

The program, which was initially scheduled to run through June, hopes to continue its efforts through the end of the year with the support of volunteers, local government, and corporate donations like this one from SoCalGas.
