Prudent Produce has been blessed and honored in serving some of the best people ever in Central Iowa since 2010! It has been our mission and pleasure from day one to give back to the community. Roughly 10% of our profits goes back into the community in the form of helping those in need and families with special situations. A few examples where we have had the opportunity to give back are as follows, although not an exclusive:
Local area homeless shelter
Last year we assisted in feeding hundreds of area homeless at a local shelter. Not only do we donate produce for the meals, but encourage staff to assist with serving, along with talking to individuals in need.
Church Food Banks
Central Iowa has a number of food banks that individuals use to stretch their weekly food budget. Understanding the importance of this need we give whenever we have extra items or "scratch and dent" food items.
From time to time we have customers who fallen on hard financial times.
Our goal is to help families eat healthy and when warranted, we have discounted our service cost for these individuals or waived all cost until the situation is resolved.
Two years ago
...a young couple from Ankeny was called to become missionaries in Tanzania, we donate monthly to support their efforts in spreading the gospel and assisting those in need on another part of the world.
These are just a few ways your dollars are spent here at Prudent Produce. Without you, our customers, we would not be able to give as we do. We are a local business and feel strongly that it is our duty to give back to the community that has given so much to us.
