March 31 event offers bargains on fresh produce

Posted: March 19, 2012

The Office of Student Engagement at Arizona State University’s West campus is teaming up with local nonprofit organization The 3000 Club to host a “Market on the Move” event on Saturday, March 31 from 8 a.m. to noon. Attendees may receive up to 60 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables for a $10 donation.

Market on the Move will take place in parking lots 10 and 11, on the north side of campus at 4701 W. Thunderbird Road. The event also will feature a health fair and food trucks, and a disc jockey will provide entertainment.

The 3000 Club rescues produce destined for landfills and makes it available to the public, food banks and other service agencies. It holds frequent Market on the Move events throughout metropolitan Phoenix and Tucson. The organization rescues some 30 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables annually.

“ASU and The 3000 Club share a commitment to improving the quality of life of Arizona’s residents,” said Stacey Flores, coordinator in the Office of Student Engagement on ASU’s West campus. “The March 31 event is a wonderful opportunity for community members to come to campus and obtain healthy food products while supporting a worthy cause.”

Additional ASU clubs and organizations involved in co-sponsoring Market on the Move include Changemaker Central, SURVe, Alpha Kappa Psi – Upsilon Omega chapter, and Market on the Move West.
