CORAL SPRINGS, FL – The City of Coral Springs is hosting a drive-thru food drive on July 10 in honor of the local government’s 57th year as a formally recognized municipality.
The event will be in the City Hall Parking Garage (9500 West Sample Road) from 9-12 p.m. to provide much-needed food to local food banks.
Donors will be required to remain in their cars and have their food donations placed in their trunks or in easily accessible areas to avoid person-to-person contact.
In addition, residents can drop off food donations at the City Hall lobby from July 1 - July 9, 9 - 3 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and on Fridays, 9 - 1 p.m. Face coverings are required when entering City Hall to donate.
The following food donations will be accepted:
- Canned tuna
- Canned chicken
- Spaghetti sauce
- Black beans and pinto beans
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned pasta and meat (ravioli)
- Peanut butter
Coral Springs City Manager Frank Babinec said the food drive is part of the city’s efforts to help residents during the coronavirus pandemic. In recent months, the city has worked with Feeding South Florida to provide more than 5,000 families with food donations.
“Our city staff are true public servants and are committed to developing new ways to assist those in need. Turning the city’s birthday celebration into a food drive is a great example of that commitment,” Babinec said in a news release.
