Farmers to Families
Eli Brooks from Daystar Church posted the following bulletin message: “Spread the word! Farmers to Families food box distribution is THIS Thursday!
Boxes will be available at Madison City Stadium (211 Celtic Dr. Madison) Thursday 2/18 and Monday 2/22 starting at 9:30AM. Boxes must be picked up no later than 12:00 PM in order to guarantee freshness. We have PLENTY for everyone!!
Farmers to Families” is a $4 billion provision of the Cares Act. Through this act, the federal government is purchasing food from US farmers and giving it to families to ensure that the food does not go to waste and that families are helped out during the pandemic.
Daystar Church, in partnership with the Madison City Schools, Farmers to Families, Faith-Based Coalition, and the USDA, is serving as a POD (place of distribution) for these fresh food boxes. Each foodbox contains healthy perishable food products such as pre-cooked chicken or pork, dairy products, and assorted fruit and vegetables.
They are available to all families on a first come, first served basis. Families need not show any proof of need or identification.
NOTE: Monday 2/22 is our final distribution for this round of Farmers to Families.
