Effective March 19, Member Share Grocery Program hours at our three UP Centers located in Orlando, Indian River County and St. Lucie County will transition to be Monday - Saturday, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., with our Orlando and St. Lucie County locations also operating Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. To streamline our operations to focus on the increased need at our main Indian River UP Center, our satellite grocery program located in South Vero Beach will close at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 21.

As we continue to focus on serving the community during this increased time of need, our programs remain available to low-income families.

Fools Day 5K

This is no joke! On Saturday, March 28th, 2020, United Against Poverty of St. Lucie County will host a one-of-a-kind charity run/walk, our 2nd Annual Fools Day 5K. Fools Day 5K is a professionally-timed race for runner, joggers, and walkers of all ages and abilities. The unique event encourages participants to "Be a Blessing in Disguise" by wearing a pair of Groucho novelty glasses throughout a 3.1 mile course filled with silly string, chattering teeth, and other fun surprises. The race/run will be capped off with a pancake breakfast.
