Food Assistance Available for Residents Financially Impacted by COVID-19

BREVARD COUNTY, FL. Opportunities are available Saturday for food assistance for residents financially impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. 

The UF/Brevard Extension Service is hosting farmer’s markets in which individuals can obtain $50 in CARES Act dollars, in the form of tokens, for the purchase of fruits, vegetables, honey, coffee, eggs, herbs and other items available.

The markets will be held at these locations: 

  • Today, Friday Sept. 11, Titusville Visitor Center, 419 South Hopkins Ave., Titusville, from 3-6 p.m.
  • On Saturday, Sept.12, Paddling Paradise, 4220 Dixie Highway NE, Palm Bay, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

The markets are open to all residents. Those who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 will be eligible for the CARES Act tokens upon completion of a self-declaration form that will be available on site. A photo ID will be required with matching address as that on the self-declaration form. Also, at both sites there will be Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) available.
