The 3000 Club is bringing back Market on the Move now that temperatures have reached produce-friendly levels. On Saturday, Dec. 20 you can head to MOM headquarters and grab up to 60 pounds of produce for just a $10 (cash only) donation.
This week’s event, which is rain or shine, will feature fresh Roma tomatoes, grape tomatoes, cucumbers (regular, English, and Persian), yellow squash, Serrano chiles, honeydew melons, and green and yellow bell peppers.
The group is also looking for volunteers to assist in the event. If you’re interested in lending a hand, you can see Ray Jennings at the event beginning at 5:30 a.m. for setup. According to the 3000 Club, the organization and its volunteers are responsible for rescuing approximately 30 million pounds of produce that would otherwise go in landfills, which goes to helping over 460,000 families in need and 300 different food banks.
However, if you’re just looking to get some affordable, healthy food for your household, you can stop by Market on the Move at 250 S. Toole Avenue from 8 until 11 a.m. on Saturday. Be warned that produce goes fast, so they earlier you arrive, the better.
While there is no set schedule for future Market on the Move events at this time, you can keep up to date by checking out the 3000 Club website
