Free Food Distribution
Miami-Dade County Commissioner Eileen Higgins, District 5 and the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Spaces Department host a free drive-thru food distribution at Miami-Dade County Auditorium every Saturday.
Several South Florida community groups have joined forces to create Adopt-a-Box, a program that raises funds to purchase local and Florida-grown fruits and vegetables directly from our farmers who need help during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. The produce purchased from the farms are assembled and distributed to families and individuals in need. This program is led by Redland Ahead, Unity Groves, and Taste of Redland. Adopt-A-Box distributes 800 20-pound family-sized boxes to Miami-Dade County residents.
The event is organized on a drive-thru, first-come first-served basis. Recipients are required to wear masks, remain in their vehicles, and open their trunks when it is their turn in line to receive the food. No walk-ups will be permitted.
