CLR Roasters Café La Rica Espresso Brand and local community partners Feeding South Florida, Pepsi, Goya Foods, and Presidente Supermarkets will join forces with Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins, who is co-hosting its ninth annual Thanksgiving Distribution at Marlins Park on November 17.

“We all cherish spending time with loved ones and enjoying delicious food during this special holiday.
