PUSD food box distribution program open through July 22

Wednesday mornings at Peoria Unified warehouse

Peoria Unified School District has extended the date for its food box distribution program through Wednesday, July 22.

Residents can pick up a 20-pound box of produce and up to two gallons of milk at a free drive-thru food box pickup between 8 and 9 a.m. every Wednesday at the Peoria Unified warehouse, 10721 N. 95th Ave.

Residents do not need to be a parent in the district to take advantage of this offer. It is open to the whole community.

Community members and staff volunteers have been donating their time during these warm summer months for the program.

This initiative launched after the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) exercised authority under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to create the Farmers to Families Food Box Program, designed to purchase and distribute agricultural products to those in need.

Sterns Produce, a local produce company that was awarded one of the contracts from the USDA, reached out to Peoria Unified to help distribute these goods.
