In the United States, one in six people struggle to get enough to eat. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel wants to help fight hunger, so he's partnered with the Wayne Barton Study Center's Good News of Christ Ministries, WSVN 7 and Cox Media Group to distribute free food, via the Grocery Giveaway Food Distributions.
10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Saturday, October 14, 2017
The North Lauderdale Sports Complex
701 SW 71st Ave., North Lauderdale
The goal of the event is to enhance the health, welfare and education of the community through healthy eating. Participants are encouraged to bring bags and carts to fill with meat, produce, bread, dairy and frozen foods. Everyone is welcome to attend this free community event.
The Wayne Barton Study Center was founded by former Boca Raton police officer Wayne Barton, who has created a safe recreation and education venue for youth to study, learn and play.
These Grocery Giveaways are taking place throughout South Florida.
