Local contact-less food drive allowing each car to pick up food for 4 households

Feeding local families in Arlington

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Hundreds of families hit by COVID-19 now have access to fresh, free groceries--even if they don’t have a way to pick them up.

Several Jacksonville organizations gave away nearly 10,000 pounds of fresh food to local families in need. No questions asked.

Northeast Florida Women Veterans organized the contact-less food drive. The Women Army Corp, Mission Continues, Woodforest National Bank and Congressman Al Lawson’s office also volunteered their time on Wednesday. All the food was donated by Farm Share.

But, this food drive differed from others. Each car can pick up for four households. It’s tailored to those who may not have transportation.”

The reason we do that is because some households don’t have transportation and so we encourage them to carpool so to speak.” Deloris Quaranta, CEO of Northeast Florida Women Veterans, said.

Each box of food has chicken, milk, pasta and canned goods.
