My Pensacola News Journal Oped: Help Farmers Feed Us All

Every Sunday, as Burwinkel Farms of Ohio sets up its summer food stand, a special pickup takes place. A member of the nearby Holy Family Church Pantry stops by to get some of the yummy fruits and vegetables that Burwinkels is so known for.

Burwinkels gives away many boxes of its produce to the Pantry, including some donated by customer purchase. This is fresh, nutritious food that will be distributed to low-income families in the coming week.
