School may be out, but that doesn't mean that parents can suddenly afford food for their children. Luckily, our Miami Dolphins are doing something about it.
As summer break starts, Miami-Dade schools are working alongside the Miami Dolphins to make sure kids have a meal everyday. According to Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, students will be able to pick up healthy meals Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. During an event on Tuesday, former Dolphins wide receiver Nat Moore said, “It’s about taking care of people that need it the most.”
The team has estimated that almost four million meals have been distributed since school campuses closed in March due to COVID-19. With this new relationship, parents that are struggling through these tough times can count on meal for their kids through August.
Now, the good news don't stop there, the Dolphins also said that they are providing 500 meals a week for schools in Miami Gardens for the 2020-2021 school year. If you'd like more information as to where the distributions are taking place, click here.
