Miami sports organizations distributing free food

Sports don’t just provide entertainment. Leagues also help serve the community.

South Florida’s sports organizations have partnered with the meal delivery service DeliverLean and subsidiary DeliverLean Cares for weekly drive-through food distributions. Nonperishable items and/or meals are being provided on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last.  

DeliverLean, which has facilities in Oakland Park and Hollywood, focuses on delivering healthy gourmet fare to its clients.
