No Floridian goes hungry and no food goes to waste, that is the goal of Farm Share. This non-profit organization established in 1991, is working to fight poverty and alleviate hunger and malnutrition by recovering and distributing fresh and nutritious food, FREE OF CHARGE, to those who need it the most.
To accomplish this task, Farm Share partners with more than 2,000 food pantries, soup kitchens, churches and other not for profit agencies throughout Florida to help feed hungry communities and individuals.
On Friday, April 26, 2019, FREE fresh produce will be distributed in conjunction with Farm Share, Osceola County Commissioner Viviana Janer, Hispanic Federation Florida & Southeast, and Osceola County Sheriff’s Office at the Robert Guevara Community Center located at 501 Florida Parkway, Kissimmee, FL 34743. This walk-thru event will take place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and is a “first come, first serve” basis while supplies last. Be sure to bring your own bags, boxes, or other containers to help you carry the produce.
Last year alone Farm Share distributed more than 55 million pounds of food to more than 17.5 million households residing in Florida’s 67 counties. Of the 55 million pounds of food distributed, more than 20 million pounds were fresh healthy and nutritious fruits and vegetables. That’s what Positively Osceola calls making a “Positive Difference.”
