Florida Power & Light Company (FPL), and the Meals on Wheels program provided by the Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department partnered to help 200 Miami-Dade homebound disabled residents in Little Haiti and North Miami stock up on emergency food supplies to prepare for the hurricane season.
Recently, FPL and Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department meals on wheels volunteers delivered food kits to residents for use during a hurricane emergency.
Several hundred emergency food kits were delivered to individuals. Each kit included a three-day supply of nutritious shelf-stable foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and water.
In the event of a storm, Meals on Wheels may not be able to get to the homes of residents it serves, so these kits provide necessary food until it’s safe to resume regular deliveries.
