Hardee County participates in the 4H Youth Against Poverty Food Drive

The Hardee County 4H Council is leading the charge against hunger in Hardee County with a food drive that will last until the end of May 2013.

Each Hardee County 4H member is charged with collecting non-perishable food items in a food drive they are calling "The Hunger Games". Drop off points have been established all over Hardee County (Tractor Supply, Hardee Ranch Supply, 1st Baptist Church Wauchula, Florida's 1st Assembly of God, Winn Dixie, Florida Hospital, PRECO and the County Library)with all proceeds to benefit The Hardee Help Center. To find out how you can help call Hardee County 4H at (863)773-2164.
