Commissioner Joe A. Martinez is hosting a food distribution with Farm Share for the residents of Miami-Dade County


MIAMI – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Joe A. Martinez is helping residents with a food distribution this Saturday, April 29, 2017. The Commissioner is partnering with Farm Share in order to provide nutritious goods to residents in need. The event is open to the public at Tamiami Lakes Park, 13220 SW 18 Street, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“Unfortunately, the need is great for many residents who find it difficult to provide essential food for their loved ones,” said Commissioner Martinez.

In addition to food distribution, Miami-Dade’s Water & Sewer will be exchanging residents’ light bulbs and showerheads for higher efficiency models. Residents can bring up to two showerheads and two of their most heavily used regular light bulbs to the event and exchange them for the efficient models for free while supplies last.

Other event partners include: Miami-Dade Police Dept., Miami-Dade Fire Dept., Miami-Dade County Transportation and Public Works Dept., Miami-Dade Parks and Recreation Dept., Miami-Dade County Regulatory and Economic Resources Dept., Miami-Dade Public Library Dept., Miami-Dade County Elections Dept., West Kendall Baptist Hospital, Billy the Marlin, Piag Museum, Vizcaya, The Roxy Theater Group and many more.

We want to thank our sponsors Publix, Home Depot and McDonald’s.

Established in 1991, Farm Share is a non-profit organization, dedicated to the recovery, sorting, packing and distribution of nutritious foods for people in need.
