SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) – Detwiler’s Farm Market will offer a free meal for the community and first responders on Sunday.

At 4 p.m., Detwiler’s Farm Market, of 6100 N. Lockwood Ridge Road, is offering a free chicken dinner to all Sarasota and Manatee county residents and first responders.

People can come enjoy a hot meal of barbeque chicken, baked beans, corn on the cob, dinner rolls, fresh vegetables, and cold drinks while supplies last.

During Hurricane Irma, Detwiler’s Farm Market and neighboring Miller’s Dutch Haus Furniture on 6100 N. Lockwood Ridge Rd. was made into a shelter for all employees, friends and neighbors. The stores never lost power.

Nobody will be turned away for this free meal, according to Detwiler’s Farm Market Facebook page.

“If everyone gives a little, it goes a long way,” says Sam Detwiler, President of Detwiler’s Farm Market.
