TUPPERS PLAINS — Beets, turnips and carrots, oh my!
A truck load of produce was unloaded on Friday morning at Eastern Elementary School to be given to any Meigs County resident.
Produce including, beets, turnips, red peppers, carrots, cucumbers and squash, was distributed among students, parents, faculty, staff and any one who stopped by the school.
More than 100 bags of produce were sent home with students in the school, while many others stopped by the school to pickup the vegetables.
Food for the giveaway was offered by the Southeastern Ohio Regional Food Bank which is located in Logan, Ohio.
Students from the Eastern Middle School Student Council, junior high football team and the high school National Honor Society helped to unload the produce and organize it into bags for distribution. Several volunteers also helped with distributing the food and registering those taking part in the giveaway.
