Food For Thought needs your help!
With just two weeks remaining in the school year FFT will distribute 34,000 food items to the children in our program during this time. We are in immediate need of food donations to help us complete these services.
Donations can be dropped off this Wednesday & Thursday from 8-5 in our Santa Rosa Beach location or in Destin from 1-5:00p on Wednesday. You can help a child in your community by donating items such as these.
Food For Thought Outreach is proud to participate for the 3rd year in the Smoke on the Coast BBQ & Fireworks Festival! Thank you to our generous cook team from Waste Management! Come by and sample all the great foods and support your local charities!
When a call from the Walton County Sheriff's Office comes in, you answer and when they want to bring you a check, you squeal with joy!! They didn't just bring a check, they brought a $5,000 check and that kind of acknowledgement from our uniformed friends makes for a great day, week and month!!
Thank you Deputy T.J. Brooks and Captain Audie Rowell for delivery of the check and thank you to the Walton County Sheriff's Office Employee Foundation and the "Let the Green Be Seen" Program for your support and careful watch in our community!!
Thank you Big Red Truck for supporting our Destin Chamber After Hours with your delicious small bites and a portion of the proceeds benefitting FFT. The delicious bites, the smiles, and the many to-go orders proved to be a success for all!!
Garden Initiative in Progress!
Thank you to Daniel Leonard and Evan Anderson from the UF IFAS Walton County Extension Office for coming out to work with the students from Walton Academy Charter School on their school garden! The Garden Initiative started last season with a thriving garden on campus and students continue to cultivate the initiative with a spring garden this month.
The IFAS, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, team helped with an outline for garden maintenance, harvesting, and replanting throughout the year. The team worked with the students to help them gain an understanding of how and why certain fruits and vegetables were planted and how to best cultivate them for a high yield.
