As leaders of the community, our Board of Directors are determined to provide a better experience for the residents and business owners who live and operate in the Miami area.
Throughout its forty plus years of service, MLKEDC has risen to meet challenges threatening our community and 2020 was no exception. Our response to the pandemic was swift. Within a week of the shutter in place order, MLKEDC implemented a hot meals program to address the food insecurity our senior community faced. The hot meals program not only provided nutritious meals for our seniors, it was an economic stimulus for our kitchen incubator participants providing more than thirty new jobs at a time when unemployment rose to its highest point in decades.
