Lutheran Social Services holds first weekend food giveaway

Jacksonville, Fla. — Lutheran Social Services, in partnership with Helping Florida and Clear Health Alliance, is hosting a mobile food pantry this Saturday, March 20.

The food pantry will be open to anyone in need from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and will include 1,600 pre-packaged food boxes to be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The event will take place at LSS headquarters, located at 4615 Philips Hwy in Jacksonville.

“Our pantry serves more than 2,000 households every month, but we know there are families missing out on much-needed food assistance because they work during the week,” said Bill Brim, LSS Executive Director.

“Thanks to our partnership with Helping Florida and Clear Health Alliance, we are able to offer this special Saturday food giveaway.”

LSS feeds hundreds of local families every week through its regular pantry, which is open five days a week, Monday through Friday.
