Produce On Wheels (POW!)

To increase our senior and homebound recipient’s access to fresh produce, a program was developed, free of charge, called POW! (Produce On Wheels.)

POW! launched in October of 2015 after a needs assessment revealed that recipients wanted access to fresh fruits and vegetables.  These deliveries are meant to provide healthy snacks.

Bags typically include some of the following: a head of lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, oranges, bananas, cucumbers, salad dressing, along with an educational handout (offered in both English and Spanish) that has information on the health benefits of the items, easy recipes  and a comments section.

Volunteers deliver the POW! bags to all meal recipients on the 3rd Saturday of each month. Recipients must be home to receive the bag.

Step 1. Please complete a Volunteer Application.

I just wanted to let you know what a great day it was to deliver produce.  Everyone was so glad to see us. They were so excited to get fresh fruit and veggies. POW made their day! Thank you for allowing me to be part of this very special day!

I appreciate all the nice fruits and veggies I received on Saturday.  I will really enjoy them. Thank you to the volunteer that greeted me at my front door.
