JSU Crop Drop August 16, Free Potatoes and More

On Tuesday, August 16, JSU anticipates giving away over 20,000 pounds of food that may include potatoes, watermelons, and corn. Everything is free and open to the community, no restrictions, and first come first serve.

A “Crop Drop” is a gathering of excess crops dropped off at a central location. JSU students will bag the produce and distribute to the community. This will be one of many events that new students will participate in for new student orientation week.

The “Crop Drop” site will be in the vacant parking lot in front of Blackburn Middle School’s football field, located at 1311 W. Pearl Street.

JSU students will be bagging produce from 8 a.m. to Noon and we are asking community residents to come get the food from 10 a.m. to Noon.

The community will drive up and JSU students will place the produce in your car.

Please see flyer and map below for more details.

This event is being hosted by the Center for University-Based Development and the Alice Varnado Harden Center for Service and Engaged Learning.
