NeighborImpact served 115 cars and 576 individuals in 1.5 hours from their mobile food bank during the Produce Plus distribution at Redmond High School on June 18. Two more dates are planned this summer.

The free summer lunch program for children held Monday through Friday at Redmond High School was joined by NeighborImpact and Jericho Road June 18 offering produce and non-perishables to increase food access for families “experiencing food insecurity or who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus health crisis,” according to a news release from NeighborImpact.

A news update on the NeighborImpact website said they served 576 individuals during last week’s event.

NeighborImpact plans to offer two more “Produce Plus” distributions at Redmond High School, from 9-10:30 a.m. on July 16 and Aug. 20.
