On October 8th, 2009, there was a fire at the Daily Food Bank Broward County Warehouse, which caused the tragic loss of 93,000 pounds of food, which equals 62,000 meals. Knowing the Daily Bread Food Bank serves thousands of people throughout Broward County and that hunger is such a big issue in our community due to the poor economy, South Florida personal injury attorneys from The Injury Law Clinic wanted to give back to the community they serve, so they decided to participate in this year’s Feeding South Florida, formerly Daily Bread Food Bank, Thanksgiving Food Drive event.
Working in partnership with 1st United Bank of Cooper City, Diana Castrillon and the associates from The Injury Law Clinic donated and hand-delivered nearly 500 cans of non-perishable food items. The Injury Law Clinic was excited to contribute to this year’s Feeding South Florida food drive event which helped hundreds of needy families this Thanksgiving holiday.
Feeding South Florida is a not for profit organization that empowers other South Florida Not-for-profit organizations to feed needy people and improve their lives. This is accomplished by providing food and other grocery products and by educating and engaging our community to fight hunger and poverty.
We’re happy to report that Feeding South Florida was able to bounce back larger and stronger than ever, thanks to such a large response from the media and the local community. Feeding South Florida has recently opened a new facility in Pembroke Park.
Wondering what you can do to help fight hunger? The Injury Law Clinic would like to encourage you to donate money or non-perishable food items to Feeding South Florida. Did you know that by donating just $1 Feeding South Florida can provide six meals?
