City of Doral COVID-19 Individual and Family Food Support
With schools and many businesses closed throughout the city, some people who have never needed help before now need assistance in many fronts, and the seniors, children, individuals and families who rely on City of Doral’s services are usually more in need during this pandemic. Ask for help! The city is happy to assist you and feed your family.
It’s especially important for seniors, who are the most vulnerable to COVID-19, to keep their immune systems strong with enough nutritious food. From the signing of the First Emergency Order, Mayor Bermudez and City Council has been working through the Doral Police Department’s Emergency Resource Unit to provide food to seniors from the Silver Club Program when needed and requested.
But not only seniors are struggling as a consequence of the coronavirus hitting our community, since a big portion of the population has endured a wide variety of difficulties as a result of these trying times.
So if you are a Doral Resident who is an elderly, pregnant, immunocompromised, have been told by a physician to stay home, have suffered a loss of income, or is facing any other challenges caused by COVID-19, you are eligible for home delivery of food by the City of Doral.
“Our hearts go out to everyone in our community facing challenges during this time,” reads a press release shared by City of Doral from where residents are encouraged to request food assistance by submitting a form through the City’s 311 online system at www.cityofdoral.com/311.
Simply click tab titled “COVID-19 Food Support Request” and the city will provide you with information so that you may receive a onetime food delivery.
After receiving your request, you’ll be contacted by the City of Doral to learn your personal situation. In times of need, everyone should take advantage of these initiatives that aim at making sure all residents get a proper nutrition in order to be protected against the coronavirus and other diseases that are now threatening our lives.
