This is a drive-thru event. Please be aware of volunteers wearing bright orange vests, who will be directing traffic. All produce items will be prepared and packaged separately.

The following items will be available
-   A 16-pound box consisting of Potatoes, Oranges, Zucchini, Onions, Apples, Tomatoes, and Peppers
