RPB Staff And Volunteers Power Weekly Food Giveaway

The volunteers gather for a group photo.

Park employees from the Village of Royal Palm Beach, along with a number of volunteers, have been distributing food to more than 600 families in need every Wednesday morning since April 22, 2020, at Royal Palm Beach Commons Park. Shown here is the food giveaway in full swing on Wednesday, Oct. 20, taking care of vulnerable residents of western communities during these difficult times. Each week, cars start lining up at 5 a.m., awaiting a truck from Feeding South Florida. Then the staff offloads the truck and volunteers bag the food and give it out to the families. More than 3 million pounds of food have been given out since the project began.
