How does our food reach others in the community daily?
Farm Share, Inc provides food to numerous Non-Profit organizations. We have over 400 agencies in the Panhandle of Florida who are signed up to come pick up food from our Quincy facility each week. There are another 378 agencies and churches in Dade County and 52 in Broward County who rely on our Homestead location. Additionally we have a network of agencies with Star of the Sea in Monroe county. And roughly 115 agencies served from our Jacksonville location. These groups pick up truckloads of items and are able to sort, bag and distribute from their locations. These groups help us to extend our reach to communities located all over Florida.
