Although school is out for the summer, Mandarin Oaks Elementary teachers, former students and parents, community volunteers, Duval County Public Schools School Board member Lori Hershey, Region 6 District Councilman Michael Boylan, and At Large City Councilman Terrance Freeman turned out to help distribute fresh food through Farm Share on June 12. 

More than 200 families attended and received fresh food for their family. The seed for this event was planted in the spring, when Hershey brought the idea to Principal Leigh Butterfield about hosting the event.  With the help of Freeman, Farm Share was able to coordinate a date to help Mandarin neighbors. Families received fresh chicken, milk, rice, beans, water, and sanitizer.
