Lake Worth, FL (April 2, 2020) –Green Life Farms, an innovative commercial-scale hydroponic grower in Lake Worth, contributed over 3,000 pounds of premium baby leafy greens to Feeding South Florida throughout the month of March as food insecurity increased across Florida because of the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
“While growing our retail and food service partnerships, Green Life Farms is pleased to support the important work of Feeding South Florida year-round. Providing our baby leafy greens to such a deserving organization is a small way we can help our neighbors in need especially during uncertain times such as these.
