Food Distribution for Locals in Need By National Community Services and The CCV Center
By: Clearwater Community Volunteers
Implementing CDC guidelines and precautionary measures, families stayed in their cars, driving through the distribution point, to accept bundles of food prepared by volunteers wearing masks and gloves.
Isabel Barcelo of NCS said, "We want to make our community stronger and ensure that these people we helped today have some sort of food on their plate to eat. When nonprofits unite for a common purpose we are that much stronger and able to create a bigger awareness for problems like hunger."
While this is NCS's first-ever food distribution in Pinellas County, the nonprofit has had successful distributions in the Miami area for over 2 years.
Among the items available were fresh fruit and produce as well as hundreds of bags of chicken legs and thighs. Each car was loaded with the food boxes according to the size of the family so that each member has enough food for a week.
"When I was growing up I always knew that there were people out there who needed help." said Barcelo. "I knew I had to help them, even if it was only with providing the basics like food and water because these things matter in our lives. My partnership with groups like the CCV Center, FREE, Crossroads Christian Church and Farm Share helped me to find volunteers and provide the food make this distribution a reality."
