February 2015 Farm Share | University Lakes
Farm Share is a non-profit organization whose mission is to alleviate hunger and malnutrition by recovering fresh and nutritious food and distributing to those who need it most. By tapping into a vast supply of donated produce that otherwise would be thrown out, Farm Share keeps their costs low, while providing fresh fruits and vegetables and other nutritious food to the hungry and food insecure.
“It is rewarding to work with Farm Share, The Department of Children and Families and my colleagues to continue to build this important program for our community,” said Rep. Artiles. “There are an overwhelming number of families that are struggling in Miami-Dade County, but we are aware, and we want to help.”
