JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Farm Share is hosting a food bank on Saturday to help those in need.

The nonprofit organization, which is Florida’s largest food bank, joined with The House of Prayer will give away fresh produce and non-perishable canned goods.

The distribution will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday until supplies last, and the event will be held at 2214 University Boulevard South.

Distributions are drive-thru only to minimize contact and to ensure safety. Attendees must arrive in a vehicle with a trunk or cargo bed.

With more than 3.9 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.
