While Miami Children’s Museum’s facility is temporarily closed to the public due to current Covid-19 restrictions, it remains dedicated to serving the community and fulfilling its mission by being a beacon for South Florida families. The Museum has joined with Caleb & Calder Sloan’s Awesome Foundation and partnered with Farm Share, a leading statewide food profit, to help the less fortunate and hungry in our community with an Awesome Food Giveaway!
It is a contactless delivery system for a drive through pickup. Cars must enter the drive to the Museum and form a line. When it is their turn, they can pull up to the distribution point with their windows up and their trunks open. There will be food packages for up to 500 families on a first come first served basis. No walk ups will be allowed.
“When our sons were young, their favorite place was the Miami Children’s Museum. Our son Calder visited the Museum on the evening before he unexpectedly passed. The Museum is not only a happy place, but a sacred place for us. The Caleb and Calder Crane Factory in the Port of Miami exhibit dedicated to Mr. Awesome warms our hearts. We’ve long partnered with Deborah Spiegelman and her excellent team at the Miami Children’s Museum on numerous events. When we first heard about the incredible work of Farm Share, we became excited beyond measure to collaborate with them in feeding families and people in need with this Free Food Giveaway.” – Chris and Carla Sloan co-founders of Caleb and Calder’s Awesome Foundation.
“It is an honor for us to work with the wonderful Caleb & Calder Sloan’s Awesome Foundation to bring some assistance to those most vulnerable in our community who are experiencing challenging times,” says Deborah Spiegelman, CEO and Executive Director of Miami Children’s Museum. “We are also excited to be working with Farm Share to fight hunger in our community.”
“Farm Share is beyond grateful for the opportunity to continue providing nearly 2 million pounds of fresh produce and nutritious food to thousands of Floridians every week across the state. Today’s event will provide hundreds of local families with 10-15 pounds of food for the week ahead,” said Stephen Shelley, Farm Share CEO.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
