Florida Food Pantries

MIAMI, Fla. State officials say they have enough supplies and federal funds to keep Florida's food banks stocked into November even if the U.S. government shutdown continues.
A spokesman for Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says the state will continue delivering canned goods, fresh vegetables and meats to food distribution programs, thanks to unspent dollars and orders placed before the shutdown began.
Aaron Keller says the state can stock food pantries as it normally would until mid-November.
Food distribution programs relying on federal supplies are feeling the pinch from the shutdown because the U.S. Department of Agriculture halted its funding for those programs Tuesday.
