Anyone who is food insecure is welcome to attend the event next week.

The Salvation Army Orlando Captain Ken Chapman says it’s crucial to make sure that pets aren’t left out when it comes to pandemic relief. 

“So many times the pets you know like in natural disasters get forgotten. So we are very excited to partner with this group to be able to provide pet food for those who are struggling.”

Chapman says volunteers at the drive thru event will pack residents’ cars with two week’s worth of free pet food for cats and dogs provided by Regency Relief.

“We have both cats and dogs food that will be distributed and it will be enough for at least two weeks for a pet.”

Chapman says pet owners can also pick up a week’s worth of fresh produce and canned goods provided by the USDA Farmers to Families Program. The event runs from 1 until 3 pm in the parking lot of the Men’s Shelter.

No vaccines will be available next week on site.
