A Kissimmee chef and Kent Custom Homes came together to create the campaign, Feed Osceola. The project raised over $23,000 for the Osceola Council on Aging.
The Council will be using 75% of it to purchase produce from local farmers, like Mick Farms in St. Cloud, and distribute those fresh foods to folks.
The other 25% will be spent at small businesses, buying gift cards from them to give away to residents.
“We’re able to sell to the Council on Aging at a very reasonable price. Cheaper than they can get it from a broker,” Aaron Mick the owner of Mick Farms said. “So I think it’s good and important to have local farms help the local community especially in times like these.”
