To ensure children have access to food during summer when school is not in session, Feeding South Florida®, the leading domestic hunger-relief organization in the South Florida region, is hosting its 2nd annual End Summer Hunger Sort-a-Thon at its main warehouse. Volunteers — 100 maximum per shift — will sort donated food. Individuals and groups are welcome.
Throughout Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties, the counties which Feeding South Florida serves, 280,630 children are in need of food assistance. Many children rely on a nutritious breakfast and lunch through the National School Lunch Program and are at risk of suffering from hunger during summer break.
