50,000 pounds of food intended for Puerto Rico will now aid evacuees in Central Florida

From Central Florida-

Tens of thousands of pounds of donated food that have been sitting in a Jacksonville warehouse will be distributed to Puerto Rican families in Central Florida who have fled dire conditions on the island.

“The need for them is great,” said the Rev. Jose Rodriguez of Jesus de Nazaret Episcopal Church in Kissimmee.

His church works with 134 families who struggle to pay for groceries, and about one-fourth of them are Puerto Ricans who recently arrived from the island.

“I’m ramping up ... but I need to get another holiday push,” said Rodriguez, noting that donations tend to drop off after the holidays.
