In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, Farm Share, the 27-year-old food nonprofit, is deploying semi-trucks with resources from its warehouses in Homestead, Pompano Beach and Jacksonville heading towards the Panhandle and North Florida to assist those in need.
Loaded with over 80,000 pounds of MREs, rice, canned goods, dry goods, water, drinks, and personal hygiene items, Farm Share will be in the Quincy/Tallahassee area as soon as possible.
To assist in their efforts, Neighbors 4 Neighbors is raising money to support their long-time partners, Farm Share, for relief efforts for Hurricane Michael survivors. Funds raised will be used for fuel and additional driver pay.
“For 26 years, Neighbors 4 Neighbors and Farm Share have been responding to hurricanes throughout the state of Florida. We are always proud to support their efforts,” said Lynne Cameron, Executive Director, Neighbors 4 Neighbors.
Donations for Farm Share’s Hurricane Michael Relief Efforts may be made online at Neighbors 4 Neighbors.
