Just in time for the stews of cool autumn days, free carrots and butternut and spaghetti squash are available for the taking in the parking lot of Woodside Church, 1509 E. Court St., today.
Rev. Deb Conrad said the produce came from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan for an event thrown by the Genesee County Hispanic Latino Collaborative last Saturday. The Collaborative has Woodside Church as its home base. Saturday’s event was a Community Resource Fair including 15 vendors and a food giveaway. Juani Olivares of the Collaborative said the reason for the event was to close Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations.
Two large boxes of the remaining produce are at the south end of the Woodside parking lot near the east wing of the building.
