Feeding South Florida Teams Up with InterMiami CF & Publix to Host Veterans Appreciation Luncheon
Feeding South Florida® – the leading hunger-relief organization in South Florida – has teamed up with InterMiami CF and Publix to honor South Florida Veterans this Veterans Day. The inaugural Veterans Appreciation Luncheon will take place at DRV PNK Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m.
Veterans from all branches of the military are invited to the free afternoon including a chef-prepared meal, live entertainment and special recognition. Veterans may bring one guest.
Feeding South Florida is experiencing an unprecedented increase in providing nutritious food to over 1.2 million individuals due to inflation, the strained supply chain, rising fuel prices and increased housing costs among other factors. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)’s Economic Research Service Household Food Security in the United States in 2022 Report, the number of people living in food insecure households in the United States in 2022 increased to 44 million, including 13 million children. This is an increase of more than 30% and 40% respectively from the previous year, the highest rate and number since 2014 and the largest one-year increase since 2008.
Space is limited. Veterans must RSVP by Nov. 6.
