When we moved to Vegas we decided to do all we could to make a difference, and that led us to start not only a church, but also a community service organization called The Verve Foundation.
One of the projects we are launching out of the Foundation is the Las Vegas Food Co-Op, where we’ll be able to provide food (fresh food, the same food you’d get in a grocery store) for about half the price you’d pay retail. It’s going to be a cool way to help people hurt by the economy.
Well, today is our first food distribution! We’ve found that people are a little slow to understand the concept and not completely trusting about it, so it’s starting kind of small, but we’re hoping to see steady growth as people catch on and see that there’s no catch to it.
