First ‘Produce Giveaway Day’ a big success

Folks at Evansville’s All Saints Parish tell us that the first of three “Produce Giveaway Days,” held July 14 at the St. Anthony Campus, was a big success. We were totally blown away,” said parishioner Deavron Farmer.

“We probably had 60-70 neighbors show up, and the (Seton Harvest) veggie van left without a single vegetable left! We had multiple parishioners from All Saints bring in baskets from their own gardens, and we gave away every last veggie. Our Praise Band sounded amazing on the rectory porch, and our Wellness Committee handed out recipes and cold drinks. It was really an amazing event.”

The second Produce Giveaway Day is scheduled for 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. CDT Aug. 11 at the St. Anthony Campus.
