SCOSIC has partnered with Produce On Wheels-With Out Waste (P.O.W.W.O.W.) to bring fresh produce to the SW Valley. Larry Cervarich, program director for SCOSIC’s lunch delivery program Meals of Joy for seniors who are homebound or recuperating from a hospital stay feels the need and urgency for additional sources of food to be available to help alleviate hunger and malnutrition not only for seniors but also for others in our communities. “In Arizona, we are lucky to have this abundance of produce being rescued and donated,” says Cervarich. “P.O.W.W.O.W. does a phenomenal job. They rescue produce from more than 120 produce growers in Arizona for distribution at agency sites.” P.O.W.W.O.W. disperses over 10 million lbs. of fresh nutritional produce annually to communities at churches, schools and other entities throughout Southern Arizona and the Metropolitan Tucson and Phoenix service areas. This produce is available at a low cost. Anyone may purchase with a contribution of $10 for up to 60 lbs. of fresh produce. It’s wonderful to share with neighbors, friends, family or someone who's in need.
