Each month, Longmont Food Rescue holds ‘Produce in the Park’ and Parking Lot events around town. This is essentially a FREE pop-up ‘Farmers Market’ event where everyone is welcome to stop by and ‘shop’ for free! No questions asked. We do not require recipients to fill out forms. For details on next event, please follow Longmont Food Rescue on Facebook (here). We create a Facebook event, listing the location, day, time, and other pertinent information around the middle of each month. We encourage folks to use alternative transportation – if possible, please ride your bicycle, walk, or take one of the free Longmont buses. Events take place rain/shine/snow – any weather!
We are continuing with a hybrid model for 2022: Produce in the Parking Lot on 2nd Sundays, Produce in the Park on 4th Sundays. As always, no forms to fill out or questions asked. We will be handing out food as long as supplies last, so arrive early to ensure you receive a bag!
For Parking Lot distributions: All vehicles/bicycles will form a line, and food will be bagged ahead of time. Please do not exit your vehicle or approach volunteers; food will be brought to the vehicle.
For Park distributions: Please continue to socially distance. Each household may fill 1 bag at a time, then return to the line so everyone has a turn to select groceries.
