Chandler-based Compass Christian Church is a recipient of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farmers to Families Food Box Program, which distributes surplus food to local communities in need, according to a news release from the city of Chandler.

As a recipient of the funding, Compass Christian Church will distribute 1,000 free boxes containing fresh produce and dairy every Friday through June 26. The boxes will be distributed from 7-10 a.m. Fridays at the church campus, located at 1825 S. Alma School Road.

Residents are asked to drive up to receive one box of produce and another with dairy products, which may include items such as strawberries, oranges, apples, cantaloupe, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, yogurt, milk and cheese, according to the city.

“We’re grateful to have a member of For Our City-Chandler as a recipient of the Coronavirus Farm Assistance Program,” said Victor Hardy, the executive director of For Our City-Chandler, in a news release. “These free food boxes filled with fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy will provide a much needed lifeline to families in need. I encourage the public to help spread the word about this program in our community.”
