VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Some Osceola County families will have a chance to pick up food items at no cost on Saturday morning.
Farm Share, a nonprofit that aims to help food-insecure residents in Florida, will distribute free, fresh produce and non-perishable canned goods in Kissimmee.
Organizers said the giveaway will be held in conjunction with The Mercy Foundation, Inc.
The Aug. 13 event is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will be held at:
- 2188 McLaren Circle, Kissimmee, FL 34744
Farm Share said it helps to fight hunger “by working hand-in-hand with local farmers to recover and redistribute produce that would otherwise be thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections.”

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the distribution event will be drive-thru style to minimize contact and to help ensure the safety of everyone who participates, organizers said.
Attendees must also wear a mask and arrive in a vehicle with a trunk or cargo bed.
Saturday’s food giveaway will be on a first-come, first-served basis and will operate until supplies run out.
