Fresh to Go!

Today is the last “Fresh to Go!” free fresh produce stand of the summer, 2-3pm at Polk County River Place.
“Fresh to Go!” features a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, all free to receive. Most of the produce has been purchased with funds provided by a grant from the Aetna Foundation, with the remainder being donated from Capital City Fruit and other sources.
Broadlawns Medical Center will be providing bottled water to individuals as they wait and administering free blood pressure checks and general health information.
We are still seeking volunteers to help hand out fresh produce at “Fresh to Go!” You can sign up to volunteer online below.
DMARC was awarded $12,000 to procure fresh produce for the “Fresh to Go!” pop-up produce stand by the Aetna Foundation. The stand aims to introduce fresh produce and healthy choices into the diet of low-income families and individuals in the greater Des Moines area.
