Fortunately, the relaxed work requirements waivers for benefits were extended, but the need continues.
Rain doesn’t stop us, but safety is everyone’s priority. Tropical storm force winds from Hurricane #Isaias are expected by tomorrow.

As we complete the fifth month of experiencing COVID-19, wearing masks, waving hello, and standing six-feet apart has become part of our new normal.
Unfortunately, so has the need for increased food distribution. The lines aren't getting shorter and life is getting harder for over 1 million people.
But the helpers give us hope. YOU keep us motivated. Our community has come out in force to help execute our mission and we're so grateful. Visit feedingsouthflorida.org/covid19 to help or receive assistance.
