Parkland Pumpkin Patch Raises Thousands for Feeding South Florida
{City of Parkland}

By Michelle Spitzer

If you purchased a pumpkin at the Equestrian Center, you helped provide over 21,000 free meals.

Last October, residents raised $2,379 for Feeding South Florida, a food bank serving Broward, Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties. 

For every $1 donated, nine meals are provided. 

At Wednesday’s meeting, Parkland city commission members thanked all who bought pumpkins from Oct. 23 through Oct. 28.
