FARMINGTON — On Friday March 12, Tuesday March 16, and Friday March 26, Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County will distribute food boxes containing fresh produce, meat, dairy products, and a gallon of milk to families throughout Franklin County through the Farmers to Families Food Box program.

Farmers to Families is a government sponsored program in which the USDA awards vendors to procure, pack, and deliver combination food boxes to non-profits in states across the country. The opportunity benefits farmers, growers and consumers who have all been impacted financially by COVID-19.

Distribution will take place starting at 8:30 a.m. while supplies last in the HCC parking lot located at 105 Mt. Blue Circle, which is approximately ¼ mile west of Franklin Memorial Hospital. Masks are required.

All are welcome to receive a free box. Businesses who would like to receive boxes for their employees who may be working during the distribution days can make arrangements in advance.
