Southeastern Food Bank is looking for drivers to deliver boxes of food to 1,000 families in need in West Orange County. The deliveries will be made from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 15, and drivers will meet at West Orlando Baptist Church, 1006 E. Crown Point Road, Ocoee.
The program is organized by Southeastern Food Bank; Food for Families has provided food for needy families for 31 years.
Volunteers have sorted and packed 1,300 banana boxes of food, totaling more than 50 pallets weighing 40 tons, that will be delivered to the local homes. Each family will receive a box plus two bags of items including produce and baked goods. The food is donated by Publix and Kroger.
Volunteers are asked to sign up at southeasternfoodbank.com/events but can show up even if they haven’t registered.
