Food insecurity affects 1 in 10 American families. HCA Florida Mercy Hospital is proud to support The Coconut Grove Crisis Food Pantry in helping the organization provide food to individuals and families who need it the most across our Coconut Grove community. Today, our CEO David Donaldson, along with several members of our leadership team, presented a donation on behalf of HCA Florida Healthcare to help the pantry provide meals to more than 220 families in our community during this holiday season and throughout the year as part of a nationwide initiative designed to support our local foodbanks- Healthy Foods for Healthier Tomorrows.
The number of households served by The Pantry has dramatically increased from 60 households in March of 2020 to more than 220 weekly, which is why the pantry depends on donations and the support from community partners like Mercy.
Our Mercy employees will also be dedicating A Day of Service on Tuesday, Nov. 28 to help sort food products for distribution.
About The Coconut Grove Crisis Food Pantry
The Coconut Grove Crisis Food Pantry was established in 1984 by four sponsoring organizations: Christ Episcopal Church, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and Plymouth Congregational Church.
The Coconut Grove Crisis Food Pantry is located in Gibson Hall at Christ Episcopal Church (“The Pink Church), on 3475 William Avenue in Coconut Grove. The donation of the spaces gives them a home that is easily accessible to the community.
