EVENT HIGHLIGHT

MARKET ON THE MOVE - INEXPENSIVE FRESH PRODUCE

Saturday, Jan. 20th, 8-11am

Alta Vista High School, South Campbell Avenue, Tucson, AZ, United States

EAT FRESH! SAVE FOOD!


Do you love fresh fruits and vegetables?
Do you want to save FRESH food from going to waste?
Come to the 3000 Club's Market on the Move Hosted by the UA Department of Nutritional Sciences


The University of Arizona Department of Nutritional Sciences will be partnering with the 3000 Club and Alta Vista High School for this event.


ABOUT: The 3000 Club works with produce companies in the U.S. and Mexico to distribute tons of produce each year which would otherwise go to waste. Distribution sites receive a variety of fruits and/or vegetables by the pallet and customers pay $10.00 for up to 60 lbs. of produce. http://the3000club.org/wordpress/marketonthemove/


HOW TO PARTICIPATE:


  1. Show up at Alta Vista High School between the hours of 8:00am-11:00am (while supplies last)
  2. Pay $10.00 (Cash preferred)
  3. Load up on delicious produce, take home, and enjoy.


TIPS:


  • Early birds get the best pick! Consider arriving on the front end, although there should be plenty to go around.
  • Bring a wagon, rolling cart or packaging of some sort (box or canvas bag) to carry produce. Boxes will also be available for you to use.
  • Consider splitting the cost with a friend and sharing the produce- 60 lbs is a LOT of fruits and vegetables! (You don’t have to take it all but you are allowed to if you would like)
  • Save the date- We will be holding a distribution at Alta Vista on the 3rd Saturday of every month November 2017-May 2018
