How it works:
Before the program starts, you’ll receive a message informing you
which days of the week you can expect meal deliveries. These times
could be anytime Monday-Friday, between 11 AM – 7 PM.
On each delivery day, you’ll get a series of text messages letting you
know how close the driver is to your residence. Our driver will not exit the
vehicle, so upon arrival, you’ll need to go outside right away to meet the
driver and pick up your meals. It’s that easy! If you can’t find them or can’t
be home at the designated time, give us a call as soon as you know
Who we are:
Founded in 2013, Health in the Hood set out to connect communities to
wellness with a simple idea; local vegetable gardens to feed and inform
communities in need. We applied for funding, gathered community
partners and constructed our first urban vegetable garden in
Liberty City, Florida. Since then, we have expanded to a network of nine urban farms and have distributed over 50,000 pounds of free fresh, local produce to families in need. Our programs include community driven urban farms, healthy living workshops, and a mobile produce pantry. This program will expand healthy living into delivery, bringing freshly prepared meals right to your home with the help of our delivery partners.
Who is eligible:
The meals are intended for individuals and families who:
Are unable to afford meal delivery or grocery delivery and have been impacted by COVID-19;
Live in the greater Miami-Dade County area; and
Have a household income under the poverty line
Frequently asked questions
What's in the Delivery?
Health in the Hood will provide a set of healthy, balanced pre-cooked meals. They will be refrigerated, so they’ll just need to be warmed up to eat. Each meal has a protein, a grain, and a vegetable. Every day might have different types of food, but they’ll always be focused on healthy eating! If you have any allergies or dietary requests, please call us at (786) 922-3597 for more info on the day’s meals. The number of meals will be based on the information shared at sign-up combined with our availability.
What if I won't be home?
We can't make the delivery if someone isn’t home to retrieve the food. If you won’t be home, call us as soon as you can at (786) 922-3597. We can try to reschedule to another day or let you pick up the meals yourself at your convenience.
What if I couldn't find my driver?
If a delivery arrived, but you couldn’t find the vehicle, call us at (786) 922-3597. We’ll check that the address is correct and collect any extra info to find your residence. We cannot guarantee we’ll be able to deliver another set of meals.
How I can share feedback?
If you have any comments about the food, the driver, the schedule, or anything else about the program, please share your feedback at (786) 922-3597. We’d love to know any recommendations to improve the program.
