DeliverLean, one of the nation’s largest healthy meal delivery services and food manufacturing companies, and DeliverLean Cares, its charitable division devoted to engaging the South Florida community, will roll out a third food drive location at Marlins Park on Tuesday, May 5. Beginning at 1 p.m., DeliverLean in partnership with the Miami Marlins Foundation will host a drive-thru only food distribution to provide non-perishable items and/or a fresh meal to anyone in need. The first come, first served food drive will take place every Tuesday at Marlins Park for the foreseeable future.
“DeliverLean, along with our charitable organization, DeliverLean Cares, is committed to continuing to help the Miami-Dade and South Florida community,” said Scott Harris, DeliverLean founder and CEO. “We’re excited to partner with the Miami Marlins to expand our reach and our capability to do good in the community.”
DeliverLean Cares has established an expansive food drive initiative to collect non-perishable food donations in order to expand distribution locations with community partners so they can reach more families in need during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Anyone in the tri-county area interested in donating non-perishable items can complete the form at www.deliverleancares.com and DeliverLean’s network of over 400 drivers will pick up the items within 24 hours and redistribute them to multiple community drop locations throughout South Florida.
“The Miami Marlins Foundation, along with the Miami Marlins, are committed to playing active roles in supporting the South Florida community, particularly during these unprecedented times,” said Raquel ‘Rocky’ Egusquiza, Miami Marlins Foundation Executive Director. “We are thankful to DeliverLean for leaning in to provide assistance to families in need from our local community.”

DeliverLean Cares is committed to helping the most vulnerable and underserved populations in South Florida by providing meals to those who need it most during this unprecedented and rapidly changing time of increased demand during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

About Miami Marlins Foundation
As the official charity of the Miami Marlins, the Miami Marlins Foundation envisions a city where all youth prosper through wellness and empowerment. With the support of partners, stakeholders, and fans, the Miami Marlins Foundation makes an impact creating opportunities for youth to stay active, achieve academic success, and build leadership skills. The Miami Marlins Foundation utilizes the power of baseball and the support of the Miami Marlins to run and fund proven programs that enable the South Florida community to thrive.
The Miami Marlins Foundation has three key areas of focus in wellness, empowerment, and youth baseball and softball. The Foundation’s wellness programs address barriers that students face to academic success and focus on food insecurity, healthy eating habits, and promote fitness. In the area of empowerment, the Foundation is focused on college scholarships, leadership development and providing educational resources to students and teachers, while the youth baseball and softball programs promote well-being, proper nutrition, and support social and emotional learning that builds champions on and off the field.
