“I think it’s important for all of us to do what we can to make sure we’re supporting folks in the community. We know there’s many people in Broward County who have note had power for quite some time. They’re having a challenge trying to get access to food and other resources so we’re trying to do all we can to mobilize to ensure we can help residents,” said Robert Runcie, superintendent of BCPS, when interviewed by the South Florida Times at a free hot breakfast event held at Mary Saunders Park in collaboration with Rep. Shevrin Jones in West Park this morning.

BCPS is also serving hot meals on Saturday to over 5,000 children and families.

Runcie said their goal is to “start school Monday so we can get back to some sense of normalcy for the county. We’re working hard 24/7 to recover from the storm.”
