Miami Mayor Francis Suarez was among those participating in the food drive.

“Times are tough for our residents and people are struggling to get by. They’re looking for work, and need the very basics of life, food and the ability to take care of their families, and that’s what we’re trying to do here today.”

More than 500 families received fresh produce, canned goods, and other necessities.
