Hy-Vee will give away over 7,000 mangoes in Muscatine on Wednesday during a drive-thru event.
Hy-Vee officials say the store on 2nd Avenue will give away 7,200 mangoes to customers on May 13th. The fruit is courtesy of Hy-Vee's produce supplier, Robinson Fresh.
The giveaway will begin at 10:00 AM and continue until noon, or while supplies last.
"Hy-Vee is donating one bag containing 12 fresh mangoes to Muscatine customers as the coronavirus 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 mangoes will be donated, which means approximately 600 families will be served by the giveaway."
Officials say the mangoes will be distributed to customers for free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Product will be safely loaded into customer vehicles on the northwest corner of the Muscatine Hy-Vee parking lot using a contact-less method to limit physical contact. All event helpers will be wearing masks and gloves for additional safety measures. No walk-ups will be allowed.
