NOTE: DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF TRASH AND GARBAGE LEFT AFTER FEEDINGS, WE ARE ONLY ALLOWING ONE FOOD DISTRIBUTION PER LOT THROUGHOUT THE DAY. IF AN ORGANIZATION HAS ALREADY SECURED THE LOT FOR ANY TIME DURING THE DAY THAT YOU ARE REQUESTING, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ISSUE YOU A PERMIT.
Do you want to organize a large group food distribution for the unsheltered homeless at one of the designated locations in The City of Miami? You will need this permit to do so. This allows The City to manage large group food distributions in designated locations and times with advance notice, ensuring a safe and sanitary environment for our residents, surrounding businesses, and unsheltered homeless. This also allows an opportunity for other homeless service providers to provide other services during the distributions.
Please note, as per the City Ordinance, only one permit per week will be given to any person or organizer.
Please note that during the threat of COVID, we are encouraging individuals and organizations to not participate in large group food distributions. If you choose to participate in large group food distribution, please follow CDC guidelines.
NOTE: Permits must be requested at least two business days in advance of the event.
