QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) - Hundreds of families came out for free food Friday for Farm Share and the National Alliance of Letter Carrier's Stamp Out Hunger Kick-off.

People lined up in their cars to get a cut of the 100,000 pounds of fresh produce, non-parishables, drinks, and toiletries.

Vendors also lined the Farm Share distribution center in Quincy to let folks know of the many programs available in the community.

This all leads up to the NALC's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on May 12.

"You get to see the bag in mailbox or if you don't see one, please put out some canned goods next to your mailbox on the May 12 and the postal service will come back and pick it up and we'll be at the facilities where it's dropped off to make sure it goes to the community it was dropped off in," said Dave Reynolds, Facility Manager of FarmShare Quincy.

Friday's food giveaway also celebrated eight years that FarmShare has been here in Quincy.

The Stamp Out Hunger Drive is honoring 26 years for the NALC.
