Avant Garden, at First and D Streets in Benicia, in partnership with Food is Free Benicia, will host a Food is Free pop-up produce stand every Thursday during the month of May from 4-7 pm or until the food is gone.
Community members who are in need of fresh, locally grown produce are invited to come by the garden (masks and social distancing, please) to pick up free produce all of which has been grown/donated by Benicians. The Food is Free mission is to create permanent and temporary food stands to provide food for those in need and to encourage those who have “extra” food to donate it for those who need it! No questions asked, no qualifications. Take what you need, give what you can.
If you have produce you would like to donate to the pop up, contact Food is Free Benicia for details.
