After a careful and thorough review of how the Rotary Club of Thomasville could be the most impactful in our community, the Big Impact Project was born.
Thomasville Rotarians and Second Harvest of South Georgia host a free produce market monthly at Weston Park where neighbors in need can pick up fresh fruits and vegetables as well as shelf stable proteins. More than 250 households representing over 700 individuals were served at November's market. Supported by a Foundation grant, club funds, a donation from the local Boys & Girls Club, and donations from local growers and Second Harvest, the Rotary Club of Thomasville meets to pack and sort prior to each produce market. Members, their spouses, children, friends, and Second Harvest staff set up and host the market each month. The market is part of the club's Big Impact Project, aimed at improving quality of life and the health of all in the community over time. Other phases of the project include an annual community resources fair and the launch of community gardens.
Our next packing day is Thursday, December 15th at Second Harvest 11:30am - 1:00pm.
Our next Fresh Produce Market Giveaway is Saturday, December 17th at Weston Park 9:00am - 1:00pm.
