The demand for food assistance has surged during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are now two drive-thru food distribution sites here in Tamarac where those experiencing food insecurity can get assistance. These sites are hosted in partnership with Feeding South Florida and local churches.
- Wednesdays, 9 - 11 am, Christian Life Center, 2699 W. Commercial Blvd.
- Saturdays, 9 - 11 am, Korean United Methodist Church, 6501 W. Commercial Blvd.
To ensure the health and safety of volunteers and community members, everyone must adhere to the COVID-19 CDC guidelines. Please remain in your car and open the trunk when it’s your turn in line.
Food is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. If you’re unable to get food, please visit www.FeedingSouthFlorida.org/covid19
and use the agency locator to find another food pantry in your zip code.
