BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. - As most of us plan to spend the holiday season with family and close friends, Broward County reminds our community to keep those less fortunate in mind, especially those dependent on local community food banks. A growing number of families count on local food pantries year-round to feed their households. Residents are encouraged to help meet the need for nonperishable foods by donating to Broward County’s 365 Food Drive.
