LEE COUNTY – Live Healthy Lee County will be at the Fort Madison Farmers Market from 5:30-6:00pm on Monday, June 24th to pick-up any donated produce for their Produce Box Project. Anyone with donations is welcome to bring them to the market, and LHLC will take the donations to one of the participating sites.
If you can’t make it to the market, and have a donation feel free to drop it off in the yellow produce boxes at one of the following locations Southview Apartments (Donnellson), Heritage Center (Keokuk), Hillview Village (Fort Madison), Mississippi Terrace (Keokuk), Newberry Center (Fort Madison), Park View Apartments (West Point), and River Terrace (Keokuk). Denmark Star Park also has a community table.
“Our tenants have really enjoyed getting the fresh produce. Many of them stay close to home or don’t have the transportation means to get to the farmer’s market so being part of this project has been great for us,” states Andrea Hernandez, Tenant Services Coordinator at Hillview Village.
For more information on the Produce Box Project contact Emily Biddenstadt, Lee County Health Department Outreach Coordinator, at (319)372-5225.
