SHARE IOWA food program combines giving and receiving; sign up now

NORTH LIBERTY– The SHARE IOWA program offers quality packages of fresh meat, fresh fruits, vegetables and other staples at a discounted price to anyone interested in exchange for two hours of volunteer service in their community.
North Liberty participants generated 145 hours last month helping local churches, schools, pantry, library, agencies and other local organizations. The program believes that one good turn deserves another and strongly encourages everyone that takes advantage of SHARE’s food savings to give back a little. Doing something nice for someone else makes the world a better place in which to live.
The Best Value package is available for $25 and includes: one pound of 80 percent lean ground beef, a 14-ounce Farmer John Fully Cooked Smoked Sausage with Beans, a package of 1.4 pound chicken thighs, a 21-ounce Birds Eye Viola Chicken Penne and Vegetable Skillet Meal, a one-pound broccoli cuts frozen vegetables, and a fresh seasonal produce assortment.
Also offered is a pasta box for $21, a quick fix pasta dinner; a ribeye steak box for $25, a favorite Father’s Day; a grill box for $24.50, great for summer picnics; and see SHARE IOWA’s website for more package offers.
