“We’re here working today with the help of State Representative (Kristen) Arrington from District 43, as well as myself, at St. Rose of Lima, with New Dimensions High School volunteering, and also volunteers from the church as well,” Commissioner Brandon Arrington shared from the food distribution line at the event. “We’ve had over 250 cars lined up this morning by 10 am before the event started, so we’re continuing to give out wonderful food, fresh produce., meat, and some almond milk as well. We know a lot of folks have been negatively affected over the last year and a half, and we want to make sure no one goes hungry in Osceola County.”
