Food for the community

Austin Taylor loads a box of food into a car at the Margaret E. Blizzard Senior Center in August as part of a food drive.

The USDA Farmers to Families Food Box program is no more at the Margaret E. Blizzard Senior Center due to unreliable delivery from DiMare Fresh, a food supplier out of Houston.

According to Toy Kurtz, Executive Director of the Washington County Healthy Living Association, DiMare Fresh has stopped replying to emails and calls from WCHLA. Though DiMare Fresh has successfully delivered orders in the past, the Sept. 3 food distribution fell through, and now the pickup scheduled for Sept. 30 is cancelled due to no communication.
