Local church Community of Hope, in partnership with Feeding South Florida, distributed food last month to 4,701 families and 20,128 individuals in Palm Beach County as a response to COVID-19.
“We are blessed to partner with Feeding South Florida on both of our Palm Beach County campuses — and we couldn’t do it without the help of our volunteers,” said Pastor Dale Locke, Community of Hope’s founding and lead pastor. “This is one way our church is choosing to ‘love the 561’ and serve our community during this unprecedented time.”
Community of Hope’s two distribution sites are located at the following addresses:
• Loxahatchee (Thursdays, 3-5 p.m. at 14055 Okeechobee Blvd.): Open to families from Royal Palm Beach Elementary School, Loxahatchee Groves Elementary School and anyone from Community of Hope’s church family in need.
• West Palm Beach (Saturdays, 1-3 p.m. at 2341 S. Military Trail): Open to families from Kirklane Elementary School and anyone from Community of Hope’s church family in need.
Food is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. In compliance with partners Feeding South Florida and the USDA, participants must stay in their vehicles at all times and unlock/pop their trunks. First-time guests are welcome but will be asked to fill out paperwork.
