ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Today and Friday, the Ann Arbor YMCA will be at 13 distribution sites this week to supply boxes of produce to those in need.

Continuing the Y’s effort to meet food insecurity needs in the Ann Arbor area, each box contains 25 pounds of fresh fruit and vegetables from national, regional and local suppliers whose businesses have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The initiative is part of the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farmers to Families Food Box program.

Distribution of the produce boxes will continue through August.

Unless noted at closed, sites are open to the public.
