Food Drive

The Salvation Army of Broward County now feeds 1,100 families in our community each month through their weekly food pantry. Donations aren’t keeping up with the increasing demand.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida May 4, 2024 (Issuewire.com) – The Salvation Army of Broward County now feeds 1,100 families in our community each month through their weekly food pantry. Donations aren’t keeping up with the increasing demand.

As summer break approaches, this crisis will only worsen, says Major Guadalupe. “During the summer, when schools are closed, families that rely on free or reduced-cost meals for their children face additional burdens,” he explained. They often turn to food banks and pantries for support. “This is especially challenging for children, who need proper nutrition for their growth and development.”

Rising food prices are further exasperating a dire situation, stressed Major Guadalupe. “Families simply can’t afford to feed their children, and our supplies are running low. We are coming to our fellow Broward County residents for help.”
