Sen. José Javier Rodríguez and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava will host a food distribution in Homestead Thursday morning.
The distribution will take place at St. Martin de Porres Church in Homestead at 9 a.m. The church is at 14881 SW 288 St.
The two Miami-Dade lawmakers are partnering with Farm Share, the Miami-Dade Police Department, Temple Israel of Greater Miami, and the Catholic Archdiocese of Miami for the event. Farm Share is a nonprofit organization aimed at providing food to those in need.
Though the economy is beginning to reopen, thousands of families are still impacted by the slowdown caused by social distancing restrictions instituted in response to the novel coronavirus.
Rodríguez secured an endorsement Wednesday from the Florida AFL-CIO which cited, in part, his work to help constituents during the COVID-19 outbreak. Rodríguez represents Senate District 37. He won that seat in 2016 and is seeking reelection in 2020.
Levine Cava represents District 8 on the Miami-Dade County Commission. She is one of several candidates competing to be the next Miami-Dade County Mayor. Levine Cava would be the first woman candidate to win election to that office if successful.
