Farm Share

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, State Representative Kionne L. McGhee partners with Farm Share for a free food distribution to benefit the South Dade community and surrounding areas in Florida House District 117.

When: Friday, March 20, 2020 at 10 am

Where: (LOCATION CHANGE) Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, 11591 SW 220th Street, Miami, FL 33170 (Next to Goulds Park)

Details: This event will be drive through only.  No walk ups will be allowed.  

Farm Share, one of Florida’s leading food nonprofits, is actively working to support South Floridians impacted by COVID-19. The abrupt interruption of business in various industries caused by COVID-19 has increased demand for food distributions to support Floridians who usually don’t struggle with food insecurities. 

All events listed below are drive-thru only to minimize contact and ensure the safety of all parties. To obtain food, attendees must arrive in a vehicle with a trunk or cargo bed.

Farm Share is expecting to feed more than 500 local families at each event.  Recipients should expect to receive the following: 

  • Fresh produce
  • Non-perishables canned goods 
  • Canned proteins
  • Water 

Donations can be made via FarmShare.org or by texting “EAT” to 41-444

COVID-19 has impacted everyone and the need for support is at an all-time high.  Farm Share is activating all of its resources to make sure Floridians don’t go hungry, but we can’t do it alone. We are asking individuals, corporations, and municipalities to partner with us and host drive-thru distributions in their communities to help distribute fresh produce, frozen meats, and non-perishable goods to those who need it most," said Farm Share CEO Stephen Shelley, "In these uncertain times, Farm Share is calling on individuals and businesses to pledge their support, both financially and with volunteer staffing, so we can continue to provide food to Floridians in every community across the state.”
