The YMCA of Springfield is partnering with the Old Capitol Farmers Market to help nurture the potential of kids, improve the nation's health and well-being, and give back to and support neighbors. Each Wednesday after the farmers market, vendors will donate their remaining produce to the YMCA of Springfield's Pop-up Produce Pantry, which will in turn offer it for free to all Springfield residents. The pantry is part of the YMCA's Healthy Community Initiatives, a nationwide movement where community leaders partner with Ys to provide access to healthier choices and lifestyles to everyone. This program will help families put nutritious food on the table by bringing fresh fruits and vegetables to neighborhoods where healthy food options are scarce. springfieldymca.org.
