SW Florida Mobile Food Pantry Supplies Food To The Outlying Area's Of Lee County

For the 2nd year in a row Ft Myers, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, and other cities in Lee County (SWFL) are receiving food, access to social services, counseling services such as assistance with food stamp applications and resume building. CCMI (Community Cooperative Ministries Inc.) partnered with several other community agencies are providing "Free Food Fridays" at various locations around the county. Using a donated beverage delivery tractor trailer custom fitted with special shelving and sliding doors on each side of the trailer, CCMI is bringing help to those who need it, to locations where they can get to it. Sarah Owen, the CEO of CCMI said "There is a whole middle class portion of our community who are now food insecure but we are not reaching them either because of the stigma attached to the traditional soup kitchen or our services are not available when and where they can easily access them" she went on to say "Free Food Fridays is our gateway to not only provide food to those who need it, but more importantly, empower them with tools for long term sustainability!"
