Local organization to provide fresh produce for older adults


CLEARFIELD, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging (CCAAA) announced that they have partnered with two regional organizations to provide fresh produce to local older adults.

The agency is partnering with Farm to Table Buy Local and Who Cooks for You Farm. This is a grant-funded program that supplies boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and meat products. These products are then packaged into family-sized boxes and are distributed to food banks, community and faith-based organizations and other nonprofits.

The CCAAA will receive a shipment of pre-packaged fresh produce boxes each week through the end of August 2020. Each box contains approximately $15 worth of fresh local produce and the variety will change weekly.

The boxes will be available for pickup only and the sites will change each week. Supplies are first come first serve.

Any older adult interested in receiving fresh produce through the free program should contact the CCAAA at 814-765-2696.

The pickup locations are as follows:

  • Parkside Community Center, Dubois from 12:00 p.m. until supplies are gone
  • Coalport Center for Active Living between 12-2
  • CCAAA Office from 4 p.m. until supplies are gone
