WOW Mobile Produce Pantry @Rotary Park - BHC next to dog park
Time & Location
About the Event
UNRESTRICTED Access to choose up to 60lbs of assorted, imperfectly delicious produce and miscellaneous pantry items for free. WOW!! Now that's a deal.
WOW Mobile Produce Pantry is a 'Farmer's Market-style' free-food distribution program monthly every third Friday. The one difference from traditional mobile markets is we offer rescued produce and assorted pantry items - imperfectly delicious, blemished seconds that would be slated for a landfill. Be part of the affordable solution with unrestricted access that benefits the environment, and combats food insecurity, hunger and poverty throughout the River Valley Tristate via local food & nutrition community outreach programs.
Whatz the hitch?.....
---> You choose bulk quantities.
---> No Substitutions.
---> Maybe we only have limited 4-5 varieties with huge quantities of each....or maybe we have 10-12 varieties with less quantity offered of each item. Always 30-lbs (or more).
---> Produce Surprise! You won't know what is available ahead of time.
---> Maybe you don't like those items. (give to a friend)
---> Maybe it is difficult to get here early. (send a friend to pick-up)
---> Maybe you have to wait in line. (it's worth it!)
---> Maybe it is rainy, too hot or freezing weather. (come prepared)
---> We may postpone an hour, but we NEVER cancel due to weather.....Rain-Shine-Cold-Heat the WOW Mobile Produce Pantry goes on!
Too much produce?....Pool your resources and share the produce with neighbors, friends, family, or someone who is in need. Pick-up for friends & family - There are no restrictions or qualifications to become a WOW Supporter. All are welcome!
(Special considerations are made for non-profit food & health programs to receive ‘After-Hours’ distributions.)
It is STRONGLY suggested that Supporters come prepared for inclement weather and bring wheeled carts, dollies, wheelie coolers, wheelbarrows, bags or bins.....or a friend or youngster to help carry and collect the produce. Courtesy service for those needing assistance and Boxes are available on site .
