Events Planned For Stadiums In North Port And Central Sarasota On May 9 & 16
All Faiths Food Bank is organizing two mass food distributions in Sarasota County this month to help residents impacted by COVID-19. The events will take place in the parking lots at CoolToday Park on May 9 and Ed Smith Stadium on May 16. Both distributions which are first come, first-served will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until food runs out or 2 p.m. The National Guard will provide on-site assistance with the massive effort.
The event is planned for people who are recently unemployed or impacted by COVID-19. Florida led the nation in unemployment claims last week, with over 180,000 more than 900,000 jobless Floridians have submitted claims since mid-March. All Faiths expects to serve as many as 4,600 community members at each location.
“We want area families struggling with the loss of jobs, or whose businesses that have been forced to close due to the pandemic, to know that we are here for them,” said Food Bank CEO Sandra Frank. “For many in our community, hunger is something that happens to other people. But now, with the current state of the economy, we all know someone who has lost their job, or been forced to shutter their business, and is facing financial challenges.”

Laura Mobile Pantry Volunteer And Client Story Collector
Ive been involved with the incredible organization All Faiths Food Bank since the summer helping lift boxes of food, sort, pack and placing bags into open trunks of waiting cars.
The grateful thank yous from mothers with children in back seats, housekeepers with buckets and cleaning supplies in their trunks, older couples many who never expected to be in these lines will always remain with me. My job is to interview clients open to sharing their stories at Mobile Pantries.

Social distancing and no-touch strategies will be observed food will be distributed via drive-thru and placed directly into the trunks of cars. Attendees will also receive information about additional Food Bank locations where groceries are available.
News stories continue to highlight the desperate plight of farmers forced to destroy fields of crops and local dairy farmers dumping milk down drains because demand has dried up while, simultaneously, an unprecedented number of families cant afford enough food. The Food Bank has purchased nearly 10,000 gallons of milk from Dakin Dairy Farms and produce from local Florida farmers, obtained with support from Feeding Florida . These foodstuffs will be distributed at the May events.

Ivan & Judith Mobile Pantry Volunteers And Donors
We are so thrilled with our experience at All Faiths Food Bank. We have been donors for some time but now with other activities and commitments on pause, it has been a great time to get involved more fully with All Faiths and we have been so happy to do so! We have volunteered a good deal and have found All Faiths to be so well organized, which is critical when you do so much! In addition, having completed our first mobile food pantry, which is our real passion, we are even more thrilled. It was beyond hot and after the first hour of packing frozen meats and then 2+ hours giving out 15lb boxes of fruits and veggies, we were soaked and tired, but proud to be part of it all.
