MILTON — FoodRaising Friends and the University of Florida Extension Family Nutrition Program are hosting a food drive from now through December.

Each month will have an emphasis on a specific healthy food. September's donation is canned protein consisting of chicken, tuna, or salmon.

As FoodRaising Friends' primary focus is providing low-income families with free, nutritionally-dense foods, the organization is hoping to improve donations by choosing healthier options for the recipients.

Donations can be dropped off at the UF Extension office, 6263 Dogwood Drive, Milton.

Call 850-623-3868 or contact Trevor Parrish,, for more information.
