Home Plate Meals Relief Fund
The Miami Marlins Foundation launched the Home Plate Meals Relief Fund with an initial investment of $100,000 to make a Marlins Impact in addressing urgent food security issues across the South Florida community due to COVID-19.
Funds will be used to support the growing food security needs in South Florida, which have been heightened by COVID-19, including local children, seniors, and impacted working families - to ensure the local community receives the necessary proper nutrition.
During these unprecedented times, we are coming together to do our part to support each other and our local communities in need. We have set up a donation link below for those that would like to contribute and help as we build this fund together to respond to immediate needs.
