Winter FRESH PRODUCE PICKUPS – Registration open now!

During the COVID-19 outbreak we are offering Fresh Produce Pickups, a drive-thru produce distribution where families can pick up fresh fruit and vegetables by driving up in their cars to Metropolitan State University’s Parking Ramp. Volunteers will sort and bag produce to prepare for the distribution, assist in distributing produce during the distribution, help clean up after the event ends and assist with traffic control to make sure the event runs smoothly.

If you’re interested in a volunteer opportunity, CLICK HERE to learn more and register.
