This event will be free and after packing groceries there will be a community resource fair from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Local community partners will be placed strategically throughout the amphitheater, so visitors can easily access informational booths as they enter the event. Each attendee will receive a passport; this passport has six empty boxes. It is requested that all attendees visit organizations before receiving a box of Greg’s Groceries. This creates space for attendees to visit, gain knowledge and receive resources that align with their specific needs or wants. Vendors will stamp the passport when attendees visit. This will show they visited the booth and will contribute to their completed form. On the form there will be a series of open- and closed-ended questions that will help gather data and understand what attendees learned from the vendors.

For more information about the event, contact Macey Silano at macey@serveandconnect.org.
