State Rep. Kionne McGhee, Dem. (Dist. 117), presented a check for $1.5 million Farm Share for the work it does for our communities. Yesterday, with the help of volunteers from our communities, over 700 families in South Dade were assisted with fresh, healthy foods. That's especially important during this time of the year when schools are closed and students cannot take advantage of the federal government's free and reduced meal program.
From the Farm Share website:
