Feeding Northeast Florida announces the launch of its first Corner Market mobile panty, in partnership with the Michael Ward and Jennifer Glock Foundation. This event will serve as an introduction to the new concept for Feeding Northeast Florida, aimed to provide food resources and nutrition guidance to those facing food insecurity in their eight-county service area.
The market was funded through a matching grant of $125,000 from the Michael Ward and
Jennifer Glock Foundation.
