    The summer of 2020 certainly was not as anyone had planned, but we are thankful that we have been able to continue to serve our community and help the food insecure.
     
    Summer by the Numbers:
    5 Curbside Pickup Locations (expanded from 3) within Okaloosa & Walton counties
    25 Curbside Service Events May - July 25
    50 Curbside Pick up events since March 23rd
    600 Families Served Weekly
    15,000 Meals Provided this summer (May - July 25)

    And we thank our Summer Curbside Sponsors:
    Chiringo
    Emerald Coast Association of Realtors
    Kim Cariker
    Prime Lending
    The Rosemary Beach Foundation 

    *At both the Destin and Santa Rosa Beach location, we have re-organized each pantry in order to be able to better serve the curbside pickups

    *We are thankful to have received a commercial refrigerator to help store fresh produce, as well as utility wagons and 3-in-1 hand trucks to assist with our curbside services
     
    *Volunteers continue to serve in keeping with the CDC health & safety guidelines

    *A partnership with City Produce has allowed for more fresh produce in our curbside distribution

    *Curbside Pickups will continue through the extended summer as the school start dates have been pushed back

    Thank you again for your continued support, especially during these unprecedented times when food insecurity is growing. We couldn't do what we do without you! #youcanhelp
