Keystone Health’s Free Food Give Away on Thursday.

Keystone gave away 1,500 pounds of fresh fruit and produce in two hours that morning.

The ‘Together We Grow Community’ outreach event was a partnership between Keystone, athenahealth and Healthy Harvest.

Boxes of produce were delivered to Keystone by Hungry Harvest, an organization who “rescues” and redistributes food that would otherwise be discarded or thrown away.

“We believe no produce should go to waste & no person should go hungry.
We won’t stop until that belief becomes reality, the organization says on it’s website.
