593 Families Receive Groceries at Food Distribution
Through the collective efforts of Farm Share; Rep. Javier E. Fernández; Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava; Town of Cutler Bay Council and staff; and dozens of volunteers; today we were able to provide a trunkful of groceries to 593 families in our community.
Thank you to everyone involved in making this happen, it was truly a team effort. We are actively looking for additional opportunities to provide more food distributions to our community and will announce any other opportunities once we confirm them. We are in this together.
