Holy Family’s Farm Share Outreach helps our brothers and sisters in need

Parishioners at Holy Family Catholic Church in Williston came together Saturday, July 22 to help their brothers and sisters in need.

The parish partnered with Farm Fresh of Florida to distribute food to the needy of Levy County, Fla. The volunteers unloaded an 18-wheel semi-trailer full of food and distributed it.

According to officials from Farm Share, more than 30,000 pounds of food was distributed to 883 individuals and 344 households in need from Holy Family Parish.

“We had more than 30 parish volunteers. About one third of our volunteers were from our young adult group. God willing, we plan to repeat this twice-a-year,” said Father Manny Lopez, pastor of the parish.
