Description
We meet near the end of the Fayetteville Farmers' Market every Saturday at 1:00 and Bentonille markets at 12:15. We just began collecting at the Springdale Farmers' Market as well, but it is smaller and does not take much time, we meet there at 12:30. We make rounds at each market, speaking with the farmers and picking up donations (when they have some available). We then weigh each individual type of produce and log it. After, we distribute the produce to one or more locations each day, deciding amounts based on perceived need. Every couple weeks we will have a mobile pantry, which means we take all of the produce to a larger living complex and create a display in the truck for residents to come by and pick what they want (like a free farmers' market). It is important that we provide choice for everyone we serve, so the mobile pantry is a fun and engaging experience for us and the community. Updates about the dates of the mobile pantry will be posted, or we can be contacted with any questions at megant2694@gmail.com.
