Pre-registration is required for the event. Participants can pre-register by calling the food line at Second Harvest at (814) 459-3663 x 121 before Monday, July 18th at noon.

The Produce Express program delivers a truckload of food for up to 200 struggling families in need where traditional food pantries are not available. By making fresh, healthy produce available to those who normally would not have access to it, Second Harvest and our partner agencies are working to encourage the community to eat healthier and make better nutritional choices. When available, Produce Express trucks also include other grocery items and non-food essentials.

Participation in the Produce Express is free. Proof of residency is required. Participants are asked to arrive NO EARLIER THAN 3:45 p.m.
