FREE STUFF: Veggies and fruit in P.G. County twice a month

  • Sumo

free veggies at largo town center

 

Free farm fresh fruits and veggies in Prince George’s County, MD twice a month.  I went today and this is what I got.

07-21-14 free veggies and fruit on counter

 

(1 cabbage, 1 watermelon, 2 bunches of greens, 6 ears of white corn and 20 small potatoes)

I filled out a form stating my city, state and zip, along with the amount of people in my household.  The form also asked how many were elderly and children.  That was pretty simple.

07-21-14 free veggies and fruit on counter line 1 07-21-14 free veggies and fruit on counter line 2

The line was was fairly long, however the lady in charge of running the line kept it moving swiftly.  I was in and out in 15 minutes.

See the schedule below for the rest of the year:
