TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Florida Department of Children and Families, along with Farm Share, will host a free resource fair and food distribution for residents of Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties on Saturday.  

The free event will bring together organizations serving Big Bend communities to help residents learn more about health, family support, and elderly services available throughout the region.

After Hurricane Michael over 30,000 pounds of food was donated for those in disaster areas. 

"Folks need it when a disaster hits like this, it's spread through out everywhere around here and inundated with tress and power lines down and there is no food for them," said Dave Reynolds, Facility Manager for Northwest Farm Share. "We need to bring that product into the disaster relieve areas and get it to them as quickly as possible." 

The event will be from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will take place at the Wakulla Community Center in Crawfordville.
