Miami-Dade Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board helps fight hunger in South Florida


MIAMI – The Miami-Dade County Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board will join Feeding Children Everywhere (FCE) to package 75,000 healthy meals at a “Hunger Project” event on March 25.

FCE was formed in Florida in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. To date, the organization has distributed over 64 million meals to those in most need in 49 countries around the globe. The event on March 25 will be the organization’s inaugural “Hunger Project” in Miami-Dade County, which it hopes to organize on an annual basis with the continuing assistance and partnership of local organizations.

The collaborative effort between the Miami-Dade Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board, the Office of Community Advocacy and FCE will also result in a donation of over 500 meals to Curley’s House, NANAY Community Center, the Coalition of Florida Farmworker Organizations and a host of other community based organizations.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Marlins Park, 501 Marlins Way, and hundreds of volunteers are expected to come out and help make a difference in our community.
