First Farmday Funday provides free produce to Midlands families

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Families were able to take home healthy food for free during the first Farmday Funday at Hyatt Park Sunday afternoon.

The inaugural event was hosted by the group Serve & Connect. Organizers say the summer months are often a tough time for families to access food with kids out of school. So, they decided to bring the farm to you, providing healthy food and resources to sustain a healthy lifestyle.

"It's not any one socioeconomic status or racial group, it's everybody. This is our community working together, having fun and fellowship and working towards the positive common goal of supporting food access during the summer months," Serve & Connect CEO, Kassy Alia, says.

The Farmday Funday also featured games and fun activities for all ages including live cooking demonstrations and support for urban gardening.
