On April 22, 2020, Supervisor Don Wagner presented the Marconi Automotive Museum & Foundation for Kids a Certificate of Recognition for COVID-19 Food Efforts.

The award reads, ‘With the utmost gratitude, I would like to thank you for your selfless humanitarian efforts. Your production and donation of over 9,000 meals for needy community members is truly appreciated.”

Al Murray stopped by to give staff the good news!

For those who simply want the bullet points, here’s the basics:

  • The Marconi opened up its kitchen to OCC Food Recovery after it lost its kitchen at Orange Coast Community College.
  • OCC Food Recovery accepts donated food and re-purposes it into healthy meals for donation.
  • Organizations benefited so far include: Thomas House Shelter, Working Wardrobes, Orangewood Foundation, OC Food Bank, Unidos South OC, assisted living homes, individual Orange County families, and more!
