Farm Share distribution in Miami

The food distribution nonprofit Farm Share will give away free food to food-insecure households in Jacksonville on Saturday.

Farm Share will give out fresh produce and non-perishable goods with the American Legion Post 197 at 2179 Benedict Road in northwest Jacksonville. The distribution will begin at 9 a.m. and run until all supplies have been given out.

Farm Share will be joined by U.S. Rep. Al Lawson, whose congressional district stretches from Gadsden County near Tallahassee to the heart of Duval.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, distributions are drive-thru only to minimize contact. Attendees must wear a mask and arrive in a vehicle with a trunk or cargo bed to participate in giveaway.

More details about upcoming food distributions in Northeast Florida are on Farm Share's website.
