NBA Hall of Famer Alonzo Mourning and food manufacturing company DeliverLean have been holding food deliveries for people to walk up instead of drive up. Volunteers have been handing out breakfast and lunch every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Organizers said they’ll continue hosting these free food giveaways three times a week for as long as they need to.
The Miami Marlins Foundation and Ark of The City, Farm Share fed local households and in celebration of Jackie Robinson Day, the Foundation will include Jackie Robinson-themed activity sheets in each bag provided to recipients.
Farm Share provided food at the Courtly Manor mobile home park on West Okeechobee Road. Organizers were equipped with gloves and masks as vehicles passed through with their trunks open so the food could be tossed in. The majority of the produce given away was donated directly from local farmers. Donations can be made via FarmShare.org or by texting “EAT” to 41-444.
In Fort Lauderdale, Mount Olivet Seventh-Day Adventist Church partnered with Feeding South Florida to feed families.
“People are hurting. If you can’t meet their physical needs, how can you meet their other needs? Food is so important,” Cynthia Holmes, of Mount Olivet, said.
The church will be doing these drive-through food distributions every two weeks. The next one is scheduled for April 29.
