With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many South Florida families have unexpectedly experienced a change in their household income. So, in an effort to assist in providing some financial relief to these families, High Power Society, Bullet Autogroup, SouthPromo.com and Quinton Dunbar of the Seattle Seahawks have teamed up to host the “Feast for the Streets Turkey Drive Thru & Homeless Feeding” event on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 from 12PM – 5PM at Dorsey Park located at 100 NW 17th Street in Miami, FL where they will be distributing over 500 turkeys and produce boxes to South Florida families and providing the local homeless with hot meals.
In addition to the turkey and hot meal distribution, they will be providing all event participants with disposable face masks to assist in eliminating the spread of this disease. All homeless participants will also receive a jacket to help them to stay warm during cold winter days and nights. The Aids Healthcare Foundation (AHF) will be onsite offering HIV testing.
“This event is definitely one close to my heart,” says Event Coordinator, Johnny “Jay Five” Harris. “I see day in and day out how this pandemic has affected my brothers and sisters in my community. Just a few months ago many families were living comfortably and working hard to save for luxury items, and now those same families are working hard just keep a roof over their head and food in their stomachs. Also, with the new legal limitations that the virus has put over us, some homeless feeding programs have been shut down or put on pause for the time being, making it harder for the homeless to receive hot meals daily. So, I felt it was my duty to call up some of my peers to put this idea into motion.”
Hot meals for the homeless will be provided by Brothers Bar B Que Pit, Half Moon Empanadas, and Sparky’s Jerk BBQ.
