Pasco politicians announce Farm Share this week – Florida Politics – Florida Politics (blog)
The 23rd annual Farm Share Holiday Food Giveaway will be held 9-11 a.m. Friday at Faith Baptist Church located at 9230 Ridge Road in New Port Richey.
The announcement was made Monday by Tax Collector Mike Fasano, House Speaker Richard Corcoran, Sheriff Chris Nocco, Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley and Property Appraiser Gary Joiner, all of Pasco County.
The giveaway includes fresh food donated by Florida’s farmers as well as meat and other items needed to make a complete holiday meal. All needy families are welcome.
“In addition to food donated by farmers, we purchase hams, potatoes, canned goods and candy canes to supplement the fresh produce,” Fasano said in a press release.
“We are blessed to partner with so many generous individuals and organizations whose support makes this giveaway possible,” he added. “When so many Floridians are hurting it is wonderful to see our community come together to serve others.”
This year’s event also is sponsored by Publix, The Volunteer Way, Bear Creek Nursing & Rehab Center, Dayspring Academy and others.
