BOKEELIA, Fla. (June 25, 2014) – Red’s Fresh Seafood House & Tavern, located at 10880 Stringfellow Road in Bokeelia, will be hosting a food drive for the Harry Chapin Food Bank until July 5.

During regular business hours, patrons who bring three or more nonperishable food items to donate to the Harry Chapin Food Bank will receive 10 percent off their check.

“Summer is a really hard time for hungry families, especially children who are out of school,” said Red’s owner Bud LoCicero. “Being in the food industry, we hate to see anyone go hungry, so we wanted to do something for the community that has been so good to us over the years.”

The Harry Chapin Food Bank has served as the only food bank in Southwest Florida. Today, the food bank provides food for more than 30,000 individuals each month. In 2013 alone, the Food Bank distributed 17.5 million pounds of food, provided 14.6 million meals, and turned every $1 into $6 worth of food for those in need.

Red’s opened on Pine Island in 2005 and has won numerous awards for its always fresh, never frozen seafood. While seafood is Red’s main feature, its menu also offers ribs, steak, chicken, salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, burritos and more.

The LoCiceros have a long tenure in the restaurant industry. Prior to opening Red’s on Pine Island, the couple owned and operated a number of restaurants and seafood markets on Sanibel, in Fort Myers, Ohio and Massachusetts.

Red’s on Pine Island is open for dinner six days a week through the summer: Monday through Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m. An extensive wine menu and full bar are also available. Reservations are not accepted.
