The Farmers to Families Food Box Program is an initiative created in response to the adverse effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on both farms and families in the United States. The USDA has utilized funding authorized by President Trump to buy produce, dairy, and meat products from local farmers and, pack it into boxes, and hand out to families in need across the country. So far, over 100 million food boxes have been distributed.
Where can I get my box?
On October 29, Farmers to Families will be at the North Street Playground to distribute 1,200 boxes of food to our community. People can pick up their boxes starting at 7:00am until all supplies are gone. Each box contains six days of food including: a bag of apples, onions, liquid eggs, 1/2 & 1/2, a gallon of milk, potatoes, vegetables, and 5lbs. of meat (sausage and hot dogs). Each box weighs 22lbs.
Can I pick up for someone else?
Absolutely! Anyone can also get a box for for the elderly who are unable to go out themselves. No limits!
Who can get food?
Anyone! This event is open to the general public.
