June 7 is the final Market on the Move event at Pima Community College’s Desert Vista Campus until the fall semester.

  • What: Market On the Move
  • When: 7-10 a.m., June 7, 2014
  • Where: North parking lot, PCC Desert Vista Campus, 5901 S. Calle Santa Cruz
  • Cost: $10
  • Info: 206-5001

This event will start at 7 a.m., one hour earlier than usual.

During that time, people can show up in Desert Vista’s North Parking Lot, donate $10 and receive as much as 60 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. Those buying the produce are encouraged to use what they need and share with friends and neighbors.

A portion of the donations collected Saturday will go to PTK, which recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students.

MOMs will resume at the campus after the fall semester starts.

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society teams with The 3000 Club  to help residents eat more fresh produce, share with their communities and support academic excellence.

The allotments come from an 18,000-pound delivery from The 3000 Club, a Phoenix nonprofit organization that rescues excess produce from the Arizona-Mexico border for distribution in metro Phoenix and Tucson.

PCC’s Northwest Campus also hosts regular MOM events.
