Hundreds of people lined up Thursday morning to receive some much-needed boxes of food and other items.
More than 2,800 families traveled to Tropical Park to redeem vouchers that allowed them to claim three boxes of food and household products. This event comes as part of an effort to fight against hunger. Solidary Foundation and The Feed the Children program put on the event. South Florida has a lot of people that are either poor or they're not working or they lost their jobs or they're losing their house, so these are the people we want to give to. said Cecith Londono.
The families in need received a 25-pound box of food, which include water, cereal and canned goods, a 10-pound box of hygiene items and a box of Avon products. The vouchers for the boxes were distributed over the last two weeks at Solidary Family Help Center , churches and community centers in the area.
The need is so great that local state leaders even met in Miami Thursday morning to consider ways to end poverty, but until the need is gone, donations like this one will continue. A lot of people need help. Nowadays, any help is good.
In Florida there are about 700,000 people living in poverty, enough to fill the Sun Life Stadium three times over.
