The corn will be distributed in South Florida Wednesday-Friday.

U.S. Sugar is again partnering with Duda Fresh Farm Foods and Cheney Brothers to deliver thousands of crates of corn to families reeling from the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Glades farmers have previously worked to farm corn, with Duda packaging it and Cheney Brothers delivering it.

Pioneer Growers will help package this round of shipments, which will be available at locations throughout the southern portion of the state from Wednesday through Friday for individuals to pick up.

“Since our company was founded in 1931, giving back to our communities has always been an important part of U.S. Sugar’s mission,” said Judy Sanchez, Senior Director for Corporate Communications and Public Affairs at U.S. Sugar.

“With demand for locally-grown, fresh food currently high, we are proud to provide our neighbors with some of the sweet corn grown right here in the Glades communities.”

According to the organization’s tally, this week’s donations will mark more 11,000 crates of sweet corn being distributed to communities in need so far.
