Sen. Jack Latvala is partnering with other members of the Pinellas Legislative Delegation and Farm Share to give away fresh produce on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at two Pinellas County locations.

Scheduled from 9:30 to 11 a.m., Latvala will be at the England Brothers Park in Pinellas Park, 5121 80th Ave. N. The second site is Oldsmar Cares at the Community United Methodist Church, 207 Buckingham Ave. E. in Oldsmar, noon to 1:30 p.m. Free produce is available to the public while supplies last at both locations.

Farm Share is a non-profit organization dedicated to the distribution of nutritious foods to those in need. It serves as a link between farmers with surplus produce and social service agencies in Florida and the southeastern United States.

When Latvala served in the Florida Senate from 1994-2002, he initiated Farm Share Free Produce distributions in West Pasco and north Pinellas. The Senator had a successful giveaway during the 2010 Thanksgiving week in Safety Harbor and in the Lealman community.
