ANN ARBOR, Mich. – On Thursday and Friday, Ann Arbor YMCA will distribute free boxes of produce to communities around Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.

Since the first week of June, the Y has distributed almost 250,000 lbs. of fresh produce. Every week, community members receive almost 1,000 boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables from national, regional and local suppliers who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

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