The Ventura Police Department and Ventura Police Community Foundation are collecting canned food for Ventura County Food Share’s sixth annual CAN-tree food drive. Residents are invited to participate by donating canned food items to the Ventura Police Department located at 1425 Dowell Drive. Donations are accepted Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. until November 30.
Groups throughout Ventura County are supporting the annual cause. These groups will then come together in Downtown Ventura at Figueroa Plaza during the first weekend of December to stack the cans into a display of holiday-themed trees. When the event is completed, Food Share will distribute the donated cans to food pantries that service over 74,500 Ventura County residents.
