TALLAHASSEE, FL – “Free Food Fridays” is a weekly co-op event sponsored by the BBCDC and Farm Share. “Free Food Fridays” was created to provide low-to-no income individuals and families with fresh food and produce, within and surrounding the Big Bend area. Established on December 12, 2012 by BBCDC Operations Manager, Tuesday Knight. After recognizing a need for fresh food in the Big Bend Community, it was only fitting that the BBCDC step in to provide a solution!
Yes, times are tough, and food is becoming more and more expensive. That’s why there were no special requirements and it didn’t matter if you are in need or if you know someone in need; The food is for everyone.
However, we aren’t the only organization in our area to catch onto Farm Share’s program. Over five organizations within a one mile block radius of our offices service the community with the same products from the same company. After a decrease in participation and thoughtful consideration, we decided to close our pantry doors in March of 2015.
We are especially grateful to our partners and sponsors. It is because of your participation and sharing our vision to help our community that we were able to be this successful. Thank you to:
