Federation Food Distribution Drive-Thru Brings Help to the Community
While pandemic fatigue has set in after nearly a year of living with the coronavirus, the needs in our community remain as pressing as ever. Yesterday, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation brought some relief to approximately 1,100 individuals and families experiencing food insecurity at our Free Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru at the Dave & Mary Alper JCC. Participants received packages of fresh produce, challah, kosher meat, non-perishables and even hamantaschen to celebrate Purim. The food distribution was generously underwritten by the Katz/Squires Family – Valerie, Michael, Danielle and Scott. Partners included Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center, our primary human service agency Jewish Community Services of South Florida, Repair the World Miami, Farm Share and Miami-Dade County. The next kosher food distribution will take place Thursday, March 4 from 9-11 a.m. at Federation Headquarters, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard.
