Crawfordville, FL- Hundreds of families in our area will now have food on their plates thanks to the teamwork of local organizations.

Farm Share joined forces with the Florida Department of Children and Families to provide free food to more than 1000 families in need Saturday.

Folks made their way to the Harvest Fellowship Church in Crawfordville to stock up on fresh fruits, vegetables and other foods.

There were also several organizations on site to provide other resources and services to the families.

"There is VITA; they're helping to prepare taxes. There's the Flow Mobile where they can check for their drivers license and update it and there are also health screenings," said Sandy Porras-Gutierrez, with the Department of Children and Families.

Last year alone, Farm Share provided more than $40 million in food to over one million Florida families living in poverty.
