Farmers to Families Food Box Program will distribute free food Friday, October 9
U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farmers to Families Food Box Program is coming to our area. Under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, USDA purchased fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy products and meat products and will distribute the free boxes to those who need them.
Beginning at 10:00 a.m., on October 9, 14, 21 and 30, you can pick up boxes of fresh food from NewSpring Church, 3001 Waccamaw Boulevard, on a first come, first serve basis. Each box should feed a family of five. The Farmers to Families Food Box Program has already delivered more than 100 million boxes of food to families across our country.
