As Thanksgiving approaches and families prepare for a potentially difficult holiday season, given the devastating financial impact of Covid-19, Feeding South Florida and local organizations offer free food to residents in Tamarac to help ease their burden.
The distributions, which began at the onset of the pandemic’s surge in Florida, have continued throughout – and as cases rise, hitting 10,000 in Florida for the first time since July, there continue to be many families still in need of relief.
The next scheduled distribution in the city is on Wednesday, November 18, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Christian Life Center, located at 2699 W Commercial Boulevard.
Community Christian Church, located at 10001 W Commercial Boulevard, will also be hosting one on Monday, November 23, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Additionally, weekly distributions will be held by Korean United Methodist Church, located at 6501 W Commercial Boulevard, on Saturdays, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
