ANN ARBOR – This Thursday and Friday, Ann Arbor YMCA will visit 15 neighborhoods to distribute free 25lbs. boxes of produce to communities that may not always have access to non-processed foods.

Continuing its efforts to provide relief for food insecurity around Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, the YMCA is participating in the United States Department of Agriculture’s Farmers to Families Food Box program.

Since the first week of June, the Y has distributed almost 250,000 lbs. of fresh produce to 15 neighborhood sites around Washtenaw County.

Through the initiative, community members receive boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables from national, regional and local suppliers who have been impacted by the COVID-19 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.
