TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- Farm Share hosted a free food distribution event Saturday, providing families with fresh produce and non-perishable items.

Held at the Walker Ford Community Center, food was distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

The director of the facility explained the event directly affects those in the community.

David Reynolds said, "Typically this area needs the help. We're more than happy to come down here. We've done it many a times down here on this and we love to bring the product out here. Folks really turn out. They're very appreciative and it's for a good cause."

Farm Share works with Florida farmers to prevent food waste and promote healthy food for people in need.
