The Children’s Home Society of Florida has announced it is hosting a “Farm Share Food Giveaway” event at Wilkinson Jr. High School in Middleburg on Thursday, Aug. 9, which is expected to help feed more than 1,000 Clay County families with fresh produce and groceries.

As many as 30 St. Johns River State College students will have an easier time, thanks to a $22,000 check to the school from the Florida College System Foundation.

State Education Commissioner Pam Stewart presented the check in St. Augustine Wednesday to college President Joe Pickens.

She says the money will go toward scholarships for students enrolled in health-care programs and for first generation students.
