Commissioner Diaz and Farm Share feed hundreds


(MIAMI-DADE COUNTY) – About 800  residents received free turkeys, rice, fresh vegetables, bread and canned goods as Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, Farm Share and the Town of Medley teamed up to feed residents on Feb. 21.

“It was incredibly satisfying to see the looks of gratitude on people’s faces as they accepted the bags of food,” Commissioner Diaz said. “I commend all the good people from Farm Share, as well as the Town of Medley, for helping us feed so many families.”

The effort was part of Commissioner Diaz’s "14 Days of Neighborly Love – Inspiring Random Acts of Kindness” initiative to foster good will in the community.
