First point of distribution (POD) site set up in Fort Meade

A Point of Distribution (POD) has been set up at Fort Meade Park, located at 1235 9th St NE, Fort Meade, FL 33841.

Residents in need of water and food are able to get one case of water and one Meal, Ready-to-Eat, commonly known as MRE, per visit. The MRE is a water-activated self-contained complete meal. Those in need may also visit the POD multiple times.

The County is working on setting up more in other areas. Once those locations are setup, those locations will be announced on the Polk County Government website and social media pages.
