Welcome to Compassion Avenue
Compassion Avenue, Inc. is a food distribution agency associated with Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida. As part of Harry Chapin, Compassion Avenue distributes food to residents based on their household income.
Beginning in April 2003 , Compassion Avenue has served the residents of Hendry County for over seventeen years. We currently do distributions every Monday from 10am-12pm serving, on average, one hundred households each week. We also strive to provide other necessities as well, such as diapers and hygiene items.
Our mission is to meet the physical needs of members of our community to show the love of Christ.
Compassion Avenue has a team of fifteen to twenty volunteers who dedicate their time and effort to meet this mission.
