Water is one of South Florida’s most essential resources. Our economy, the quality of our lives, and the health of our natural systems all depend on having enough clean water.

We focus on the unique connection between the festival and the ALA, as well as preview the upcoming event.
The mission of Broward Meals on Wheels is to provide essential services that promote independent living for seniors in our community. And they’ve been at it since 1985!

We focus on that and how you can get involved.
