Happy 2019!

Was one of your NY resolutions to support a local cause that does great good in the community?

If you anserwed yes, or hadn’t thought about but now think “what a great idea” you have come to the right place!

You may know already that Produce to the People delivers weekly boxes of fresh produce free of charge to elders in our community who may be socially isolated, living below the poverty line becasue they rely on a pension, or simply can not afford fresh food once they have paid general cost of living expenses. Often times it may mean the difference between food or medication.  Food or incontinence pads.  This is the reality for many.

We recieve no assistance to provide this service but know how vital it is so we want to continue well into the future. The biggest cost to us is fuel to reimburse our volunteers who make the deliveries and our goal is to raise $3000 to put aside to pay this non-negotiable cost of doing business.

Will you help us?

By making a donation to our cause you can be proud to know that you have helped an elder in the community access fresh produce AND you can claim it as a tax deduction.

Why wouldn’t you?
