Tallahassee, FL - Farm Share is working with PeaceJam organizers and Rickards High School students to provide about 42,000 pounds of nutritious food to disadvantaged families on Saturday, April 2, 2:00-3:30 p.m., at Rickards High School.
Low-income families in need of food can pick-up produce in the student parking lot behind Rickards located at 3013 Jim Lee Road, Tallahassee. Tomatoes, zucchini, green peas, fruit juices and more will be available in addition to health screenings.
Students and faculty will volunteer to help distribute the food as part of a community service day during the PeaceJam Southeast Conference, a weekend-long program of the FSU Center for Leadership and Civic Education.
Farm Share helps to feed families in communities throughout Florida by distributing tractor-trailer loads of fresh produce donated by farmers as well as USDA commodities. This feeding program is unique, because it handles huge quantities of fresh produce and it does not charge any fees to families or social services agencies that receive the food.
