The Miramar Cultural Center (MCC) is continuing its mission to serve the South Florida community with a new food distribution event.
More than 100 children and their families have received a week’s supply of fresh food thanks to a new partnership between MCC and FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition), a company whose programs are designed to fight childhood obesity and hunger by focusing on healthy food preparation.
The meal distribution program at MCC started on November 17, 2020, and will take place every Tuesday from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the MCC Stage Door Parking Lot. Registration is required at FlipanyMCC.Eventbrite.com.
Miramar Cultural Center’s Director, Camasha Cevieux stated, “I am so thankful to be working with the team at FLIPANY, especially during this time when so many families are in need from the growing COVID-19 crisis. It is critical that families have access to fresh, healthy food during this difficult time. Not having to worry about where their next meal is coming from means everything.”
“We are all in this together as a community supporting each other. Our mission is not complete until everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy life and reach their full potential. The quality and assortment of our meals supplied through MCC is amazing and will make a difference for many in the community,” FLIPANY’S President and CEO, Lynne Kunins added.
FLIPANY’s mission is to empower youth and their families through physical activity and nutrition education programs while raising awareness and creating policies for a healthier community.
