Veggies for All

The Building Block of Natrona uses donations from local individuals, businesses and grant programs to bring fresh produce directly into Natrona for free distribution to residents.

Natrona does not have have a food distribution center in the neighborhood. With the closest grocery nearly two miles away, the nearest bus stop about two miles away and some residents without access to transportation, Natrona truly is a food desert.

The monthly program generally offers 3-5 products (sometimes more) per adult resident at no cost from the Knights of Columbus hall at 28 Garfield Street (our ongoing thanks to KOC Council 2602) for allowing use of their building.

While most families are from Natrona, residents from other communities are also welcome. Bring a bag! Bring a friend!

We also provide fresh produce each month to residents of the nearby Brackenridge Hall Apartments through this program.

Who can attend: Anyone! You can live in any community and in any county. No paperwork is required or proof of eligibility. Just bring a bag!

What do you get: Typically, we provide 1-2 grocery bags of fresh produce (vegetables and fruits) and 1-2 personal hygiene products (deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.) per individual.

Where: 28 Garfield Street, Natrona Heights, PA 15065 (held inside the Knights of Columbus hall) - see the map below.

When: Held on the third Saturday of every month. Doors open at 1 pm sharp and we stay open until the food is gone (this often happens within a half hour).
