Wednesday, July 4
Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla. is joining the fight against hunger by holding a July 4th Food Drive benefiting Feeding South Florida™.
During the July 4th Family Celebration at Gulfstream Park, which begins at 4 p.m., participants can donate non-perishable foods such as peanut butter, cereal, tuna, rice, macaroni and cheese, protein foods, etc. to either the south or north valet areas. No glass items, please.
Each person donating non-perishable food items will be eligible to win a $500 drawing. The drawing will take place on July 5 and anyone entering the drawing must be at least 21 years of age. Gulfstream Park’s July 4th Family Celebration will include a Kidz Zone, live music, fireworks, food, fun and more.
“We’re very thankful that Gulfstream Park is holding its July 4th Food Drive to benefit Feeding South Florida,” said Paco Vélez, CEO of Feeding South Florida. “Food drives such as this allow us to continue serving our nearly 600 partner agencies like The Pantry of Broward, Inc.”
According to Feeding South Florida’s records, 938,110 individuals in South Florida experience food insecurity; 340,740 of those are children. The food insecurity rate in South Florida is 16.9 percent. Recently, Feeding South Florida’s agencies are reporting a 39 percent increase in the demand for food services, due to the current economic climate.
