PHOTO SUBMITTED FRESH PRODUCE Linda Van Alphen shows some of the fresh produce at the Summerland Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Sharing Stand. The stand, at Summerland United Church, is open each Tuesday from 1 to 4 p.m. During its first day of operations, the stand had 20 kilograms donated. Van Alphen says there is plenty of interest in the program. It is intended to connect those who have an overabundance of produce with those who often have none. The stand’s hours coincide with the Summerland Food Bank’s pickup hours, but the stand is not exclusively for food bank clients. The sharing stand will be open each Tuesday afternoon until Oct. 23.
