Farm Share's Mission Statement
Produce Recovery & Distribution

Farm Share's main objective is to recover and distribute surplus fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables. Farm Share recovers fresh produce in bulk (tractor-trailer loads, bins, boxes and hoppers). The produce is washed, sorted, packed by volunteers and inmate labor and distributed locally, statewide, and to a network of participating social service agencies serving the homeless and low-income households throughout Florida.

Throughout the years, we have dramatically increased the amount of food recovered and the number of individuals fed. The following chart represents the distribution model that Farm Share currently employs:

How We Do It

Commodity Programs
Farm Share administers the USDA TEFAP Commodity program to a two county area in South Florida (Miami-Dade and Broward). The commodity programs consist of canned, dry and frozen foods that are made available through the USDA to assist both the homeless and low-income households. These foods supplement Farm Share's fresh vegetables and fruits to provide recipients with valuable nutrients they might not otherwise be able to afford.
