Hy-Vee will give away 7,200 mangos to customers at the Muscatine Hy-Vee this Wednesday, May 13, courtesy of its produce supplier Robinson Fresh. The giveaway will start at 10 a.m. and continue until noon, or while supplies last.
Hy-Vee is donating one bag containing 12 fresh mangos to Muscatine customers as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact individuals and families across Iowa. As more families become financially impacted by the pandemic, Hy-Vee and Robinson Fresh believe it’s important to provide access to healthy produce during this time of need. A total of 6,000 pounds of mangos will be donated, which means approximately 600 families will be served by the giveaway.
The mangos will be distributed to customers for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Product will be safely loaded into customer vehicles on the northwest corner of the Muscatine Hy-Vee parking lot using a contactless method to limit physical contact. All event helpers will be wearing masks and gloves for additional safety measures. No walk-ups will be allowed.
