Farm Share partners with local church to distribute food in time for Thanksgiving – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL. (WSVN) – The state’s largest food bank has partnered with a South Florida church to meet a need in a community.

Farm Share is making sure families have enough to eat because Thanksgiving is next week.

The company partnered with the First Eben Ezer Baptist Church on Thursday to distribute the goods.

“Everything is kind of double, triple priced, and we’re trying to serve at least 400 people with turkey, chicken, all the good stuff, so they can have a great Thanksgiving dinner with their whole family,” said Pastor Burt Tuverna.

Drone video shows the need for food supplies, as cars line up around the block.

For many, the food couldn’t have come at a better time.

“We feel like this is the hardest time we’re going through right now and helping the family and the community,” Tuverna said.

The volunteers helped load all the groceries into the cars to move the line forward and get to the next family.

“A lot of people seem to need it. That’s why we’re here to do this,” said Sherwood Levine, a volunteer.

The volunteers kept giving the food until there was nothing left.
