Farm Share is one of Florida’s leading food nonprofits and the state’s largest food bank. 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. Since its inception, Farm Share has distributed more than 707 million pounds of food, with a value of more than $1.3 billion. In 2020 alone, Farm Share distributed more than 104 million pounds of food and served more than 86 million meals to Floridians. As of March 2021, Farm Share will administer 41% of the overall food for The Emergency Food Assistance Program to select regions throughout Florida, compared to distributing only 23% in 2020.
