(BPRW) FPL and Partners Help Miami-Dade Homebound Disabled Residents in Little Haiti and North Miami

(Black PR Wire) Miami, Fla. -- Florida Power and Light Company (FPL) and the Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department Meals on Wheels volunteers helped pack Hurricane Food Kits to deliver to homebound disabled residents in Little Haiti and North Miami for use during a hurricane emergency.

Several hundred emergency food kits were delivered.  Each kit includes a three-day supply of nutritious, shelf-stable food 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 the residents it serves, so these kits provide necessary food until it is safe to resume regular deliveries. 

These emergency food kits will help ensure those who are homebound and disabled are prepared in the event a storm hits. During this COVID-19 pandemic, taking care of our most vulnerable residents is more important than ever.
