Feeding South Florida®, a member of Feeding Florida®, a statewide network of Feeding America® food banks providing a healthy, adequate and consistent food supply, will distribute 25,500 units of mosquito repellant to individuals in need in Miami-Dade County. The mosquito repellant is being distributed to help combat and prevent Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases.

In total, Feeding South Florida will distribute 51,000 units of mosquito repellant in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties in mid-August 2016. Feeding Florida is distributing over 500,000 units of mosquito repellent statewide in an effort to assist in the overall health of Floridians.

Currently, 30 of Florida’s 67 counties have reported Zika cases stemming from people traveling outside the continental U.S., with Miami-Dade County claiming 106 of the total. With Florida in the middle of mosquito season and ongoing concerns over Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases, the donated mosquito repellant will provide families throughout Florida with protection from mosquitos. @FeedingSFL
