Food Distribution Helps People in Need
"We're on Social Security, and when our son lost his job, he and his three children moved in with us," said a masked elderly man from his car window. "It's been a really difficult time." This quote captures the essence of how people are truly hurting. The gentleman and his wife are two of the 1,300 people Federation helped yesterday at our bi-monthly, drive-thru kosher food distributions. Packages of fresh produce, challah, kosher meat and non-perishable items were loaded into car trunks. Partners in this important work 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.

The next kosher food distribution will take place Thursday, March 18 from 9-11 a.m. at Federation Headquarters, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard and will include special items for Passover.
