VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — Some Volusia County residents will have a chance to pick up food items at no cost 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 DeLand.
Organizers said the giveaway will be held in conjunction with First Presbyterian Church of DeLand.
The March 25 event is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will be held at:
- 724 North Woodland Blvd., DeLand, Florida 32720
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 should 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.
