[ARCHIVED] Food & Ice Distribution Taking Place in Hollywood


Ready-made boxes of emergency staple food are available at the Red Cross, 2501 SE 32 Terrace in Pembroke Park. Food is pre-packaged and the amount available varies depending upon household size. Drinking water and heat-a-meals are available at the Red Cross, 600 NE 3rd Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. These items are available at Red Cross until approximately 6:00 p.m. today (Friday, September 15th) and they will be available again tomorrow (Saturday, September 16th).

A cook out is planned for this evening (Friday, September 15th) at 6:00 p.m. at the Boulevard Heights Community Center, 6770 Garfield Street in Hollywood, and again tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. in the vicinity of 67th Terrace and Thomas Street. This is an opportunity for a hot meal and a chance to cool down in the air conditioning at the Community Center. 

Drinking water and ice will be available at the Boulevard Heights Community Center, 6770 Garfield Street, at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 16th. The ice is suitable only for cooling purposes, not consumption, and recipients will need to supply their own container because it is not bagged.
