The giveaway is sponsored by Pasco Tax Collector Mike Fasano, Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley, Property Appraiser Gary Joiner and Sheriff Chris Nocco. In addition to Farm Share, the event is made possible by donations from Publix, The Volunteer Way, Bear Creek Nursing & Rehab Center, Dayspring Academy, Ferman, TECO, Hyundai of New Port Richey, Land O'Lakes Moving and Transport and Lowe's.

Ham, potatoes, canned goods and candy canes are among additional foods donated to accompany the fresh produce donated by farmers.
