Of the people seeking emergency food relief, more than one in three had to choose between paying rent and buying groceries.
Solidary is very aware of the great need of help for the city of Miami, FL and for that reason has initiated a program in which has opened to the public the first one of several FAMILY HELP CENTERS. These centers will provide to the most needed people of our community, free bread and give the opportunity to have access to food to cover those that do not resources available for their daily feeding.
We invite you to visit our family help center and to know more about our center.
Those that keep associating the city of Miami with the American dream or to the Promised Land are very wrong.
