Multiple charitable groups will come together Thursday to help those in need by putting food on their tables this week.

The Community Hope Center, Osceola County, Salvation Army, St. Cloud Food Pantry, City of Kissimmee, Osceola Heritage Park, Osceola Council on Aging, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office will coordinate a drive-thru food pantry at Osceola Heritage Park on Thursday from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Once on property, simply follow the signs to the location.

These groups are coming together to make a positive difference in our community and to distribute food to those who are experiencing hardship during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Residents will drive-thru and be able to collect food and fresh vegetables, and will be assisted by Osceola Heritage Park and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department who are donating their services to help these organizations with the benevolent event.

Over 300 to 500 families experiencing hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic from all over Osceola County will be able to receive food that is provided by these organizations through a drive-thru system outside the facility from staff and volunteers as they load cars with non-perishable food items and fresh vegetables, and more.
