On Giving Tuesday, make sure Floridian are fed, no food goes to waste

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that, on average, between 2017 and 2019, 10.9% of Florida households were food-insecure at some time — meaning they didn’t have consistent, dependable access to enough food for active, healthy living. This alarming statistic doesn’t even account for the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased the amount of food Farm Share has distributed to food-insecure Floridians by more than 60%.

This Giving Tuesday, and throughout the year, we ask Floridians to join us on our mission to make sure no Floridian goes hungry and no food goes to waste.

For more than three decades, Farm Share has collaborated with Florida farmers to distribute fresh fruits and vegetables that may not look good enough for grocery store shelves, but are perfectly nutritious to food-insecure Floridians who do not know where their next meal will come from completely free of charge.
