Food drive organizers able to secure enough food to feed about 1,000 families for 2 weeks
ORANGE CITY, Fla. – Dozens of volunteers came together on Thursday to help feed families in Volusia County ahead of the Easter holiday.
Second Harvest Food Bank teamed up with Backpack Buddies, Orange City commissioners and Amazon for a food distribution event at PFC Emory L. Bennett Veterans Memorial Park.
“This is really to get families through those times that they’re struggling to make ends meet,” Director of Advocacy Stephanie Palacios said. “They may be making that decision between paying their rent and getting food for their family for the week.”
