A city in Miami-Dade County became the latest to give back to residents with a drive-thru food distribution on Monday.

The city of Sweetwater held the event at the Vann Academy, located at 400 Northwest 112th Avenue. The event was open to Miami-Dade County residents and supplies ran out before the event's scheduled ending.

The event, a partnership between Sweetwater Mayor Orlando Lopez, Miami-Dade county commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz and Farm Share, is the latest in South Florida in recent weeks amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Other events in recent weeks at locations including Tamiami Park, Pembroke Park, Hallandale Beach and Liberty City have been designed to give thousands of pounds of food to families in the area who may have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
