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 distribute the produce to a single site in one day. This helps eliminate the need for food to be stored by the agency. It also helps us get more fresh product to those in need before it spoils.
The program began in 2015 thanks to grant funds. Since then, Feeding the Gulf Coast has distributed over 160,000 pounds of fresh, healthy produce through distributions to communities with limited food access.
