Tuesday morning, you won’t have to move to the country to get a bunch of peaches.
Hy-Vee announced they will be bringing a fresh fruit giveaway to Springfield that they have done in other areas. The store is giving away 5,000 peaches to the first 230 customers to drive in and ask for them.
Each driver will receive a container with 20 peaches.
The event starts at the Hy-Vee location at the corner of Battlefield and Kansas Expressway at 10 a.m. and will last until the peaches are gone. Peaches are placed in the vehicles of the drivers in a contactless method and no walk-ups will be allowed to get fruit.
The giveaway happens a day after Hy-Vee donated just over $14,800 to Ozarks Food Harvest as part of a $1 million campaign to restock food pantries around the nation.
