The City of Petersburg announces the 2020 Holiday Season Giving Initiative - "Feed the Need with a Taste of Petersburg." Through Feed the Need, the City will partner with local restaurants and/or catering services to purchase pre-packaged meals to be delivered to Petersburg residents during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The goal of this program is to provide meals to Petersburg residents who've been affected by COVID-19 while simultaneously providing economic stimulus to local restaurants and their employees. Through this initiative and partnership with local restaurants and/or local caterers, approximately (7,000) seven thousand individually packaged, fresh meals will be prepared. 

These meals will be delivered over a four-day period (November 24, 25, 27, 28) to Petersburg families who may be experiencing food insecurity due to COVID-19. This program will be implemented using funding from the CARES ACT. 

The application is open to any Petersburg resident or family who may be experiencing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants can select more than one day for meal delivery.
