The City of Miami will be providing Publix gift cards worth $ 250 to residents in need or experiencing food insecurity due to the pandemic.
The distribution of the cards will begin on December 1. The only requirement is a proof of residency and an affidavit where you must sign after saying that you have experienced financial difficulties during the pandemic.
Residents can go to the following locations from 8 a.m. to 12 noon to collect their card:

The gift card program was made possible through a collaboration between the mayor, city commission, and Publix Super Markets, with federal funding from the CARES Act.
The new aid from the city of Miami is part of a total of $ 3.5 million dollars that will be distributed over several weeks in the month of December, including some 14 thousand gift cards of $ 250 each to buy in supermarkets Publix.
