OSKALOOSA — Oskaloosa Hyvee will give away more than 3,800 free apples to customers with a contactless, drive-thru event.
The event will be held Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or while supplies last.
Fresh apples will be distributed to customers for free on a first-come, first-served basis. The giveaway will take place in the parking lot north of the store. Product will be safely loaded into customer vehicles using a contactless method to minimize physical contact and enforce social distancing. All event helpers will be wearing masks and gloves for additional safety measures. No walk-ups will be allowed.
In partnership with its fruit supplier Stemilt, Hy-Vee is donating fresh produce to Hyvee customers as the coronavirus continues to impact individuals and families across Iowa. Hyvee is giving away 10 apples to the first 380 customers. In total, approximately 1,150 pounds of fresh produce will be donated.
As more families continue to become financially impacted by the pandemic, Hyvee and Stemilt believe it’s important to provide access to high-quality produce during this time of need.
