March 29 event offers bargains on fresh produce

Posted: March 24, 2014

The Office of Student Engagement and Changemaker Central at Arizona State University’s West campus are teaming up with local nonprofit organization The 3000 Club to host a “Market on the Move” event on Saturday, March 29. 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 1 p.m., or whenever the supply of produce runs out, which may be before 1 p.m.

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 Katie Shin, coordinator in the Office of Student Engagement on ASU’s West campus. “The March 29 event is a wonderful opportunity for community members to come to campus and obtain healthy food products while supporting a worthy cause.”

The Mardi Gras Express Gourmet Shaved Ice and Coffee food truck will be at the event to sell drinks.
