Federation Hosts Our 10th Food Distribution Drive-Thru
Yesterday the Greater Miami Jewish Federation hosted our 10th Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru, which helped more than 1,200 people fill their fridge. As we continue to support individuals and families who have been impacted by the pandemic, cars continue to line up for miles, sometimes arriving as early as 5 a.m. An army veteran receiving medical treatments for severe breathing problems shared, “I was making ends meet by doing odd jobs, but there hasn’t been much work since COVID. These food programs help me get by. I’m grateful to the community.” Participants received packages of fresh produce, challah, kosher meat and non-perishables. This food distribution was generously underwritten by Yleana and Yoram Izhak and Janice and Alan Lipton. Partners include 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. Our next Kosher Food Distribution Drive-thru will take place Thursday, February 11 from 9-11 a.m. at Federation headquarters, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard.
