Last weekend, there was over 85,000 pounds of food distributed to needy families in the Gainesville Community. Check out a video I put together for The Gainesville Sun.
University of Florida student John Potvin said it took him six months to organize the event. He had contacted several grocery stores to ask for all the food that would have otherwise been tossed.
Volunteers helped set up boxes of food ranging from 20 to 30 pounds for each family, each box consisting of fresh produce, meat, canned foods, bread, and beverages.
