Holiday food giveaways set this week

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) – Two large food giveaways are scheduled for families in need in Sarasota this week.

All Faiths Food Bank gifts are:

  • Thursday, Nov. 17, 4 to 6 p.m., Ed Smith Stadium, 2700 12th St. Enter at the Tuttle Avenue entrance, just south of 12th Street.
  • Saturday, November 19, 9 to 11 a.m., Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, 777 N. Tamiami Trail. Enter from Boulevard de les Arts.

The food bank says difficult economic conditions, the rising cost of living and Hurricane Ian are affecting those most at risk in the community, especially children, families and seniors on fixed incomes.

All Faiths expects to distribute more than 13,000 turkeys and trimmings, the largest number ever, before Thanksgiving, and a total of 3.6 million holiday meals.
