The Produce Drop Program distributes thousands of pounds of fresh produce to communities in need. Areas in food deserts are often left with little access to fresh produce. Or the price of fresh produce is too much for families in need to afford.
Similar to the Mobile Pantry Program, we deliver the produce to a single site for same day distribution. This helps eliminate the need for food to be stored by onsite at a local pantry. The program helps us provide healthy food to those in need.
The program began in 2015 thanks to grant funds. Since then, Feeding the Gulf Coast has distributed over 270,000 pounds of fresh, healthy produce through distributions to communities with limited food access.
