Nearly 400 Kids Receive Food Bags At Carver Park; Another Distribution Next Week

March 25, 2020

Nearly 400 children that came from as far away as Pensacola and Walnut Hill received food bags Tuesday at Carver Park in Cantonment.

“A very special thank you to some of the best donors and volunteers ever,” Mary Holley-Lewis, member of the Cantonment Improvement Committee that organized the event.

Another food distribution will begin at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March  31 at Carver Park Park in Cantonment. To receive food, remain in your vehicle, line up facing north on Webb Street and the food will be delivered to your vehicle. Children must be present.

The CIC will be accepting food donations and bagging them on Monday, March 30 beginning at 3 p.m. at Carver Park. Those volunteering to bag food should be prepared to have a temperature check, practice social distancing and other CDC guidelines.

    I’m very happy to see that the children are being fed. Is there any group that is delivering meals to sick shutins in Escambia County?

    I am so grateful for those involved with this food distribution. The staff from Jim Allen Elementary have always been top notch in my book and this confirms it. Thank you to all who have helped to get this organized.
