UP GROCERY ANNOUNCES ADJUSTMENT OF HOURS RELATED TO THE CORONAVIRUS

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.

Local Food Local Places

United Against Poverty was excited to be a part of the Local Food Local Places initiative sponsored by the City of Fort Pierce regarding the accessibility of healthy food in our communities. The City of Fort Pierce’s Local Food, Local Places Community Meeting and Action Planning Session on July 31st and August 1st served to allow community members to share ideas for how to increase access to healthy local food in the Lincoln Park community. We are excited to continue to partner with the City and this initiative to expand access to food to communities in need!
