[ARCHIVED] FoodRaising Friends and UF/IFAS Extension are collecting pasta for low-income families

FoodRaising Friends and the UF/IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program are hosting a food drive from July to December. Each month will have an emphasis on a specific healthy food. July's donation is dry whole wheat pasta.

Most pasta donated is composed of bleached and enriched wheat, which has been proven to have fewer nutritional benefits than whole wheat products. As FoodRaising Friends' primary focus is providing low-income families with free nutritionally dense foods, the organization is hoping to improve donations by choosing healthier options for the recipients.

Donations can be dropped off at the UF/IFAS Extension office, 6263 Dogwood Drive in Milton. For more information, call (850) 623-3868 or contact Trevor Parrish.
