Farm Share Food Giveaway Comes to St. Pete
A free food giveaway is scheduled for today at Fossil Park in St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG -The Farm Share food giveaway has been cancelled because the truck broke down.
Farm Share was established in 1991, with an overarching goal to distribute food without fees of any kind to agencies such as soup kitchens, homeless shelters, food banks, churches, and more. Farm Share gives food to recipient agencies without fees of any kind.
Farm Share operates the only charitable produce packing house in the eastern U.S.
This means that while most groups focus on canned and processed food donations, Farm Share’s mission is focused on repacking fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables that would otherwise be thrown away. It costs more to handle this kind of food, but fresh produce is simply more nutritious than canned, and there is a nearly unlimited supply of it being thrown out every year.
Farm Share receives food in bulk and has the resources to sort, pack, store and ship tractor-trailer loads of fresh food.
