Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru Helps Address Food Insecurity
According to Feeding South Florida, the demand for food has doubled during the pandemic in South Florida counties, including Miami-Dade. Behind that statistic is the profound human toll of hunger, and the Jewish community is not immune to this issue. The staggering number means many do not have food on their tables each night and the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is here to help. To support individuals and families facing food shortages as a result of the pandemic, Federation is hosting another Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru on Thursday, January 14 from 9-11 a.m. at Federation headquarters, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard. Cars will enter the parking lot via the northbound lane of Federal Highway and volunteers will place packages of fresh produce, challah, kosher meat and non-perishables into each vehicle’s trunk. Participants must remain in their cars and wear masks. The distribution has been 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.
