Our Work with Florida Farmers
Farm Share alleviates hunger in Florida by acquiring surplus produce that does not meet market standards because of size or minor imperfections from Florida’s farmers and distributing the produce and other donated goods to families in need throughout Florida. Farm Share also administers the USDA TEFAP commodity program in Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Gilchrist, Levy, Union, Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam, Volusia, Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion, Sumter, Palm Beach, Broward & Miami-Dade counties. The TEFAP program provides canned, shelf-stable goods, and frozen foods for low-income households. These foods supplement Farm Share’s produce recovery program with Florida farmers.
Farm Share's Food Recovery & Distribution Program
Farm Share’s main objective is to recover and distribute surplus fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables in order to nourish Floridians back to recovery. Farm Share recovers fresh produce in bulk (tractor-trailer loads, bins & boxes). The produce is washed, sorted, packed by volunteers and inmate labor and distributed locally, statewide, and to a network of participating social service agencies/food pantries serving the homeless and low-income households throughout Florida.
