With families and individuals in our community dealing with the financial pressure of  inflation, and still experiencing food insecurity related to the COVID-9 pandemic, Osceola County, with the help of local non-profit organizations and committed volunteers, continues to work to organize free food distribution events to assist those in need.

On Saturday, Osceola County, and the Chairman of the Osceola County Board 0f County Commissioners District 3 Commissioner, Brandon Arrington hosted a free, drive-thru summertime food distribution, supported by 2nd Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and State Representative Kristen Arrington.

The event took place at St. Rose of Lima Church, located at 3880 Pleasant Hill Road in Kissimmee and made it possible to distribute meal boxes to over 600 families and individuals in Osceola County’s Poinciana area.

State Representative Kristen Arrington worked along-side of volunteers from the Rotary Club of West Kissimmee, and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office to manage the event and to ensure that those in attendance were safe as they made their way through the food distribution.
