Thursday, April 30, 2020
A partnership of charities and the Town of Miami Lakes will stage a third major hunger relief effort on Saturday at Miami Lakes United Methodist Church.
The event begins at 9 a.m. at the church, which is at Miami Lakes Drive and 14800 NW 67 Ave.
Drivers should enter the church parking lot on Miami Lakes Drive, stay inside their cars and when it is their turn in line, pop their trunks.
Volunteers will place the groceries inside.
The sponsors are Farm Share, S.T.E.P.S. (Steps in the Right Direction); the town’s Elderly Affairs Committee and WCBS-Ch. 4’s Neighbors for Neighbors program.
To conform with social distancing guidelines, the event will not allow people to walk through the donation line or ride a bicycle or a skateboard.
Two previous food distributions held at Royal Oaks Park on the upper west side of town drew more than 700 cars each time.
