March 30 event offers bargains on fresh produce

Posted: March 20, 2013

The Office of Student Engagement at ASU’s West campus is teaming up with local nonprofit organization The 3000 Club to host a “Market on the Move” event on March 30. 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 begins at 7 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m. or whenever the supply of produce runs out, which may be before 11.

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 Julia Garleb, coordinator in the Office of Student Engagement on ASU’s West campus. “The March 30 event is a wonderful opportunity for community members to come to campus and obtain healthy food products while supporting a worthy cause.”

The public also is invited to join ASU students, faculty and staff in volunteering to stage the event. Volunteer R.S.V.P.s are being taken at http://s13mom.eventbrite.com/.
