Join Sweet Exchange Miami in partnership with Broken to Inspire, Chef Kulture, Hunny’z Kitchen, The Urban and Kech This Inc. again to provide FREE DRIVE-THRU DINNER COOKOUT for individuals and families affected by Covid-19 at The Urban 1000 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, Fl 33136; on Saturday, May 23, 2020 from 1pm to 4pm.  

“I was truly overwhelmed with gratitude on the amount of support we received that day. We provided home cooked full-course meals for the culture by the Kulture. Even though we remained physically distant, the community felt us up close and personal”, says Sherronda Daye of the Sweet Exchange. 

Meals being prepared for distribution

This week’s menu will be a “cook out” theme to recognize the Memorial Weekend holiday. Meals will be prepped and prepared by the black and brown culinary professional network popularly known as Chef Kulture, Hunny’z Kitchen and Sherronda Daye of the Sweet Exchange. Meals will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis to the Overtown community and participants that pre-register until food has been exhausted.

“We are excited to be able to provide food to the community again despite the fact that much of our work has slowed down from the pandemic. This Drive-Thru Dinner series is a great way to get the people motivated,” says Chef Chad Cherry.
