LIBERTY TWP, Ohio (WKBN) – They weren’t waiting for Veterans Day to help vets in Liberty Township on Friday.
At the Veterans Outreach building on Belgrade Avenue, folks were giving away free fresh produce to the men and women who served our country. The Youngstown Inner City Gardens in collaboration with Dandelion Lane Farms and Iron Soup Historical Preservation was able to collect two tons of produce.
It’s the second year for the event, and the folks handing out the food are just happy knowing the veterans will have something fresh to eat.
“i just love, love all of our veterans and what they’ve done,” says organizer Mason Carratt. “You know some gave all.”
Carratt says they were able to give away fresh produce to about 300 veterans last year, and were hoping to double that number this time around.
