Wellington Partners With Feeding South Florida To Continue Food Distributions

Wellington Councilman John McGovern, Mayor Anne Gerwig and Councilman Michael Napoleone at Tuesday's food giveaway at the Mall at Wellington Green.

Following up on its successful food giveaway on Tuesday, May 5, Wellington will continue partnering with Feeding South Florida to distribute meals at the Mall at Wellington Green on Tuesdays from 9 to 11 a.m. until further notice.

These free food distributions are on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. With the help of local volunteers, Wellington staff will distribute fresh produce and perishable food items, provided by Feeding South Florida, to those in need.

The events will take place at the Mall at Wellington Green, located at 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd., in the Nordstrom Parking lot between Dillard’s and Macy’s.

The Village of Wellington is proud to support Feeding South Florida’s mission to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and the rapidly evolving and increased food needs of those who are food insecure in our community.

To ensure the health and safety of volunteers and community members, attendees must adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 guidelines. Drivers and their passengers must remain in their vehicles and open their trunk or window when it’s their turn in line.

The village thanks to the Mall at Wellington Green and Starwood Retail Partners for providing the space to accommodate this distribution.
