The Antares team is pleased to support the Capital Area United Way’s (CAUW) Women United in helping those who have been affected by the economic impact of COVID-19.  CAUW’s initiative, United We Feed and Women United have partnered with The Life of a Single Mom to provide produce boxes and grocery store gift cards to at-risk moms in our area.

As we have all seen during this pandemic, access to some supplies and especially fresh fruits and vegetables is limited.  Children are not in school and summer programs are limited if available at all so many families are not eating healthy foods.  Eating fruits and vegetables every day helps children and teenagers grow and develop, boosts their vitality and can reduce the risk of many chronic diseases.

The CAUW has already held some distributions of these produce boxes, but this project is specifically targeted toward single mothers and their children. The idea of giving them a grocery gift card is to assist with other necessities as well.

The Fresh Produce Boxes are a great way to support our community in need:

  • This is a project organized by a national partnership of fresh produce companies to bring boxes of fresh produce to individuals and their families during the COVID-19 crisis. By partnering with Capital Area United Way women identified by The Life of a Single Mom will be eligible to take home fresh product to help feed their family for a week
  • Each box is filled with nutritious and easy to use fruits and vegetables donated by top tier suppliers such as Driscoll’s, Taylor Farms, and Sunkist. The roughly 15-25 pound box can feed a family of 4 for up to a week
  • Distributor partners repack fresh produce into take-home boxes and deliver them to the recipients at a central location so they can easily pick up the box and bring them home.  In special cases, Women United & other individuals are working to help deliver if boxes if needed
  • Recipes, 211 and other local resources will be included with box

Antares is proud to help sponsor this meaningful project.  If you would like to participate and support our Capital Area United Way with their United We Feed program please visit their website to learn more or donate – WWW.CAUW.ORG/FRESHFOOD
