The annual Crop Drop in the city of Destin will be held today from 8am until noon at the United Methodist Church, 200 Beach Drive in Destin. Crop Drop has been feeding needy families since 2009 with unsold fresh fruit and vegetables, and volunteers from our church assist this worthy endeavor. Each November, volunteers parse more than 80,000 pounds of produce into family-size bags that are loaded into various agency vehicles then transported to food pantries, homeless shelters, and church dispensaries across the panhandle of Florida. More than 50 agencies from across Walton, Okaloosa, and Santa Rosa counties collect and distribute bagged produce from Crop Drop, which feeds thousands of individuals and families each year.
