Food Collection Drive At Elite DNA Therapy Services

Elite DNA Therapy Services, a comprehensive mental and behavioral health service provider, is currently hosting a food collection drive through May 31 to support area food banks in their efforts to feed local families over the summer.

Elite DNA locations in Palm Beach County include 4425 Military Trail, Suite 203, in Jupiter (561-747-2775) and 12989 Southern Blvd., Suite 102, in Loxahatchee (561-513-6716).

According to pre-pandemic data from Feeding Florida, 3.1 million Floridians lack access to healthy food, 800,000 of which are children. Across Palm Beach County, 154,670 people are considered food insecure.

During Mental Health Awareness Month in May, Elite DNA is rallying the community to help reduce food insecurity in its local neighborhoods by collecting donations of non-perishable foods. In Jupiter, the drive will support El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center. In Loxahatchee, the drive will support Community of Hope.

“Fear of being unable to feed your loved ones and worry over where your next meal will come from can have detrimental impacts on your mental health,” said Elizabeth Dosoretz, founder and CEO of Elite DNA Therapy Services. “In line with our mission to care for families, children, adolescents and adults, our practices are rallying the community to help do our part to ensure that kids and families are fed this summer.”

The community is invited to drop off donations of food at any Elite DNA location between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Items of greatest need include canned meats and fish, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, breakfast cereal, peanut butter, rice, macaroni and cheese, pasta and more.
