City of Coos Bay release – The Coos Bay Public Library (CBPL) has partnered with South Coast Food Share (SCFS) and the Beet Food Systems Consortium to make healthy produce more accessible to members of the Coos Bay community. SCFS is supporting this project by providing the fridge and The Beet is funding our food and operational costs. CBPL patrons can obtain fresh produce six days a week during the regular hours. Everyone who enters the Library will be eligible for free produce after being asked a few basic questions that will only be used for statistics. We will not share your personal information. During August, the fridge served more people than ever – over 2,000. Come and visit us at the Coos Bay Public Library for some free produce and please, if possible, help us keep this program sustainable by bringing your own bag. For more information call 541-269-1101.
