Farm Share, one of Florida’s leading food nonprofits and the state’s largest independent food bank, announced that it has sent 11 semitrucks loaded with water, food, and disaster relief supplies to communities affected most by Hurricane Ian.
The Greater Fort Myers area, including Collier, Lee, and Charlotte Counties, received six semitrucks full of supplies, along with communities in southwest Florida receiving three semitruck loads, and communities in northeast Florida receiving two semitruck loads. Shipments aiding southwest and northeast Florida primarily contain water to fulfill the communities’ greatest need.
“Hurricane Ian has caused devastating loss statewide with many Floridians having experienced severe damage, flooding, and are living without power or necessary resources,” said Stephen Shelley, the founder and CEO of Farm Share. “We are grateful to be able to help our fellow Floridians through this trying time.”
By the end of Friday, Farm Share supplied nearly 500,000 pounds of food, water, and relief aid statewide.
