Fresh Produce on Tuesdays

The first and third Tuesday of each month, Breakthrough has a truck of fresh produce delivered to our door.  Members from the community wait in a long line for their share of produce to help them and their families through the month.  This past week it was zillions of potatoes, zucchini, squash, corn, watermelon, and cucumbers.  We ran out of carrying boxes, so our recipients scrambled to find any bag they could in order to carry the items home.  Amazingly, most of the items were able to be filled in the bags so that no one had to go without.  While waiting in line, we cut up and shared watermelon.

Why would you wait for hours to get fresh produce for free?  Well, quite simply because there is a need.  Would you help us fulfill that need?

Join us the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month starting at 12:30pm to help unload, sort, box, and distribute the food to those in need.  Make sure to bring a friend!

SPANISH translators welcomed!  A majority of our recipients speak Spanish as their native language.  If you can speak both English and Spanish, we’d love to have you to help share the love of Christ with those in line.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,”  Matthew 25:35
