COVID-19 agriculture updates: April 24

Hello DeSoto and Sarasota County Producers!

I have two very timely pieces of information for you today and here they are:

  1. Contact information for the Publix employee organizing direct purchasing from producers:
    • Curt Epperson:
    • I have attached the press release again that I emailed you all yesterday about Publix’s plans to purchase direct from Florida producers for donations to food banks.
  2. Applications for the USDA Purchase and Distribution Program are being accepted!

All my best to all of you,
