Fresh Produce Distribution – Tyler
June 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The East Texas Food Bank is resuming its farmers-market style produce distributions on Friday, June 26 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the East Texas State Fairgrounds. The events will give free produce and fresh items, pending availability, on a first-come, first-serve basis. The East Texas Food Bank has been holding these events for the past two years at the East Texas State Fairgrounds.
Families will be able to shop around and pick the produce items that work best for their family. Families will need to park and walk-up to the event on the West side of the fairgrounds, next to Building 1 and the livestock pavilions. There are no eligibility or ID requirements to receive the items. Moving forward, the distributions will be held on the first and third Friday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., with the exception of July 3. Families are asked to bring bags for their items, wear a face mask, stand 6 feet apart and limit it to one household representative, if possible. Any family seeking food assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic can visit www.EastTexasFoodBank.org and click “find food” to get information on the nearest food resources.
