Farmers to Families to distribute free food at Madison City Stadium on Thursday
Farmers to Families will giveaway food this Thursday, February 18 at 9:30 a.m. at Madison Stadium, 211 Celtic Drive in Madison.
MADISON – The Farmers to Families food program is returning to Madison for families needing food assistance.
Daystar Church, in partnership with Madison City Schools and others, will be at Madison City Stadium Thursday, Feb. 18. Distribution starts at 9:30 a.m. until supplies are gone.
The Farmers to Families food program is a $4 billion provision in the federal Cares Act. The program has the federal government purchasing food from U.S. farmers and giving it to families so it doesn’t go to waste.
Each food box for giveaway 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.
Boxes will be available at Madison City Stadium, 211 Celtic Dr.
