(WFOR-TV) More than a thousand locals lined up Friday morning for several hours under the scorching sun and heat in Miami for a box full of food.

The event located at the Central Shopping Plaza at 3825 NW 7th Street started at 9:00 a.m.

Participants got a box of free vegetables, meats and bread worth $100 until 12:00 p.m.–or until supplies lasted.

Those who didn’t want to stand in line could wait in their car for the drive-thru portion of the event.
