Ripe raspberries at food bank of San Benito County

As we near the end of the first real month of summer, we take a look back at the variety of fresh, locally grown and wholly wholesome choices shoppers have had at our Marketplace. Pallets and pallets of salad greens, along with luscious raspberries and ripe tomatoes one week. The next, we featured Brussels sprouts and a rainbow of peppers to compliment the other supplemental food choices including breads and shelf-stable boxed and canned foods.

It was all headed into our customers’ shopping bags during marketplace hours, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the food bank.

Why not drop by? Signing up takes only a minute or so. The food bank is located at 1133 San Felipe Road. If you still have any questions, just call us at 637-0340.
