“Millions of hungry Floridians rely on Farm Share, and the annual appropriations it receives from the Florida Legislature, to obtain vital lifesaving food and nutrition. With so much at stake, it is critical that Farm Share work with advocates who have the knowledge, experience, education and expertise to navigate the complex and ever-changing legislative process. For this reason, Farm Share has chosen Smith, Bryan and Myers to represent its interests and to fight for the resources it needs to carry out its mission. As a result of Smith, Bryan and Myers team of professional and dedicated advocates, Farm Share has doubled the appropriations it has received from the legislature not once, but twice, over the last five years. These efforts have in turn enabled our organization to feed millions more hungry families, children, seniors and individuals in need throughout Florida.”
