With more than 3.5 million families suffering from food insecurity throughout Florida, Farm Share meets the everyday hunger needs of Floridians by working hand-in-hand with local farmers to recover and redistribute produce that would otherwise be thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections.
Farm Share currently serves all 67 counties in Florida. Last year alone, Farm Share distributed more than 104 million pounds of food and served more than 86 million meals to Floridians.
