ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Today and Friday, the Ann Arbor YMCA will visit 15 neighborhoods to distribute free boxes of produce to meet community needs.

Continuing its efforts to provide relief for food insecurity in and around Ann Arbor, the YMCA is participating in the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farmers to Families Food Box program. Through the initiative, the Y is able to give 25 lbs boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables from national, regional and local suppliers whose businesses have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Unless noted as closed, sites are open to the public. Updates regarding distributions sites will be made on the Ann Arbor YMCA Facebook page.
