3000 Club distributes produce, dairy, food staples for $10 donation per box

Good News Notes:

“For a core group of 24 volunteers with The 3000 Club Tucson, giving time and energy is all about sharing, caring and neighbors helping neighbors — while ultimately reducing waste.

Named for 3,000 members in Tucson and Phoenix who kicked off the nonprofit with an investment of $100 each to start a small food bank in Nogales and divert truckloads of unused produce from rotting in landfills, The 3000 Club eventually seeded its flagship program, Market On the Move.

The program distributed more than 5 million pounds of produce from various locations around Tucson last year and shared over 2 million pounds with the Nogales Community Food Bank. It expects that number to skyrocket due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Pam Boyer, executive director of the club.”
