Last Day of USDA Produce Box Distribution (Round 3)

THANK YOU to our community partner, Chester Williams, CEO of ABC2 (A Better Chance/A Better Community) for thinking of us and our work even as you – and we – strategize to help DISRUPT food insecurity in our local community.

Thanks to our combined efforts (between September 22 and October 23rd) we were able to distribute 23,040 USDA Produce Boxes (30lb each). That translates to: 691,200 pounds of food or 346 tons.

In case you wonder what comes in these 30lb boxes: Meat, Cheese, Yogurt, Egg Product, Vegetables & Fruit (example: apples, melon, onions, potatoes).

Though Round 3 of the food distribution is complete, we know that our community still has needs. We at Franklinton Center at Bricks are awaiting the growth of our Just Food – Fall Garden and will continue to serve our communities local distribution spots with our crops as they mature. 

We are grateful to our community volunteers. Without their hands, words of encouragement and hours of dedicated help we would not be able to do all that we do. Thank you.

Here are some images to share a small view of what our food distribution looked and felt like:
