More Families to Benefit from Free Food Distribution on March 14, 2015
Rep. Frank Artiles (R- Dist. 118) and Farm Share will host a free food distribution on Saturday, March 14th. Rep. Artiles has hosted over sixteen free food distribution drives throughout Miami-Dade, Lee and Desoto County in the past year and a half helped to facilitate several other distributions throughout the state. This effort has provided nutritious foods to over 52,000 Floridians in need. Rep. Artiles started the program “Fresh Food for the Community” during the 2013 Legislative Session. “Beginning in March of 2013, I have had the opportunity to travel back and forth from Tallahassee to work with Farm Share in serving my community,” said Rep. Artiles.
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.”
