State Department of Agriculture Donates Collard Greens to the Needy
The state Department of Agriculture and Industries is donating nearly 800 pounds of fresh collards to help feed the needy.
Department officials say the collards were grown in the department's community garden, and the department wants to share them for Thanksgiving.
The collards will be presented to the Society of St. Andrew tomorrow.
The society collects fresh food to help the needy through food banks, kitchens and other agencies.
Officials say it will distribute the collards to agencies that will prepare and serve them.
The presentation is scheduled for 1:00 Monday at the State Farmers Market.
