LARGO – The Pinellas County Commission will join community partners to host a free produce and food distribution event Friday (July 28) in Largo.
The Farm Share event will begin at 9:30 a.m. at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, 13255 118th St. N. The giveaway will take place in the church parking lot at the corner of Ulmerton Road and 117th Street. The event is scheduled to run until 11:30 a.m. or until all food items are gone.
The county’s involvement in the Farm Share program is part of a continuous effort to ensure public welfare by distributing healthy foods to citizens most in need. Anyone in need of assistance with grocery necessities is welcome to attend.
