The distribution location is at the in town Greenhouse, 307 N.E. 14th Street.

Items available will be apples, oranges, carrots and cabbage.

The Kansas Food Bank will be delivering the produce Friday.

Abilene is the third stop of five locations for the Mobile Produce Pantry.

The organizations hope to serve 100 households during this special distribution in Abilene. Produce is one of the first items that is passed up by households with limited budgets when grocery shopping. It is one of the most perishable and most expensive.

“The Cedar House is a great partner agency of ours and we are happy to work with them on this special project” said Debi Kreutzman, community relations manager for the Kansas Food Bank.

The distribution will be first come, first served.
