Video: ASU partners with a food bank to provide affordable fruits and veggies

ASU students volunteer their time creating another way for people in the community to shop for produce

Every third Saturday of each month Changemaker Central at ASU hosts a food drive in which the community can gather to purchase 60 pounds of produce for $10.

Kendon Jung - Student Activity Advisor:  

Changemaker on all locations has been partnering with Borderlands Food bank to bring the produce from Nogales, Arizona to save from wholesale waste distribution and we activate ASU Sun Devil students into a day of service to give the food out.

I love getting to interact with a lot of different people, seeing the huge impact we make. Because at the end we're told how much produce we've given out and how much money we've generated for the community. And it's great to hear those numbers and know how much of a positive impact we made in the community.
