Farmers To Families Food Box Program


The United States Department of Agriculture Farmers to Families Food Box program is distributing free food at 10:30am every Friday through April at Credit Island in Davenport.

The family-sized boxes include healthy protein, produce, and dairy items, according to a news release.

Nutrition program coordinator Michael Shinbori, assisted by Barbara Shinbori and volunteers, has already distributed 40,000 boxes of free food to families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Friday distributions start at 10:30am at Credit Island Park Lodge, 220 W. River Drive, and continue until the food runs out. Anyone in need is welcome; there is no preapproval or verification needed.
