Fresh RX Kids and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County Expands New Program to Help Families Stay Nourished and Keep Farmers Active
Fresh RX Kids and Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County created a program earlier this month to help families and farmers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. More than 4,000 children and families from Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County have received a week’s supply of farm-fresh produce, dry-goods and other household necessities through a new program called Farm to Family.
“I am so thankful to be working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County,” said Margaret Duriez, co-founder of Fresh Rx Kids and Lox Farms. “It’s critical that families in need have access to fresh, healthy produce, while supporting our local farms, which are an important part of our food system. I’m grateful to have been able to connect our farms to our families in Palm Beach County during this difficult this time.”
Farm to Family ensures that local farmers will stay afloat after the sudden closures of farmers’ markets and restaurants. The produce given to local families today likely would have gone to waste if it wasn’t for the new food assistance program.
