Weekly COVID-19 Food Distributions on Thursdays at Mills Pond Park: Due to the ongoing need in our local community for essential groceries, the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Oakland Park, and Wilton Manors will host weekly drive-thru food distributions on Thursdays from 9 a.m. until the food runs out at Mills Pond Park, located at 2201 NW 9 Avenue.
Recipients must remain in their vehicles and will be instructed to open their trunk when volunteers are ready to load it.
Produced in partnership with Feeding South Florida, the free events are intended to provide healthy and nutritious food to those who are most in need due to job loss, income loss, or the inability to cover their monthly expenses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Food will be distributed on a first come, first served basis with a limit of one box of food per vehicle (while supplies last).
To access Mills Pond Park, please enter from southbound NW 9 Avenue (Powerline Road). For more details, call Oakland Park’s Coronavirus Call Center at 954-630-4335. For more information about Feeding South Florida, visit www.feedingsouthflorida.org
If you would like to volunteer to assist with Food Distribution Events, please call Oakland Park's Community Volunteer Corps at 954-630-4502.
Protect yourself from all infectious diseases by using these precautions.
