June 30, 2020 --
Thanks to additional federal grant funding, the Farmers to Families weekly free produce giveaway
in CH-UH has been extended through July 30.
Heights High School will continue to serve as the pickup spot from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until supplies run out) on July 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30. Recipients should enter off of Washington, drive through, pop their trunk, and a 20 pound box of assorted produce will be placed inside by a staff member or volunteer. The boxes typically contain items such as apples, potatoes, carrots, onions, and strawberries, but can vary. There will be no paperwork or anything to show; just drive up and receive a box of fresh food.
Event organizers ask that patrons wear masks. Boxes will not be placed in the backseats of vehicles.
This initiative was started by Mr. Ted Copeland, father of Roxboro Middle School teacher Dani Copeland. Mr. Copeland owns Perfect Pact, which received a grant from the USDA to make our District a site for Farmers to Families.
