UP Orlando Mobile Market - Apopka
Our friends at United Against Poverty Orlando (UP Orlando) have continued to help support the community during the COVID-19 crisis and the need for their services has become even greater during this crisis. They have member grocery centers at three locations around Central Florida:
150 W Michigan St
Orlando, FL 32806
2520 Orange Avenue
Fort Pierce, FL 34947
1050 Old Dixie Highway SW
Vero Beach, FL 32962
To qualify to shop at the reduced price locations, the applicant must be living at 200% or below the poverty level. If you have been impacted by the crisis and have lost your job or had a reduction in income, you may be able to find help at UP Orlando. If you are not sure if you qualify, they have staff onsite to help with applications to answer any questions or you can call (772) 778-3977 with any questions you may have about the program or any of the many helpful services offered by UP Orlando.
The folks at UP Orlando have discovered that during this time, the need has increased all over Florida and it's not easy for people to get to one of their locations so they have taken the show on the road. Next week they will be running a mobile market m 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Apopka VFW on 519 S Central Ave in Apopka. All they are asking is for a small cash fee to help with the costs of transporting the market to the location.
They have run this program before and found it to be extremely popular so plan on the same happening here. Social distancing and safety guidelines will be in place for the event. You do not need to get out of your car, items will be loaded for you by the volunteer staff.
