ORLANDO, Fla. – Dozens of cars lined up outside Camping World Stadium on Wednesday to pick up free food donated by One Heart for Women and Children.
Latisha King and her son Ari, 13, got up early to make the line. King said it’s been difficult the last few months at home and is currently driving for Uber to put some food on the table for her family.
They moved to Orlando from California last year.
“We started to try and make it here and then COVID came and now it’s been really rough. I’m working for Uber at the time but it’s just not really paying. I’m out there all day and all night sometimes and it’s just not paying at all,” King explained.
Angel Rosa and his wife showed up to Camping World Stadium hours before the distribution. Rosa said he’s receiving a disability check each month because he can’t work due to his vision.
“We don’t mind waiting because it’s a blessing. You gotta get here early and you gotta wait you know. A blessing is a blessing,” Rosa said.
Last month, One Heart for Women and Children handed out 50,000 pounds of food to residents at Church in the Son.
