The BAG Program
1st and 3rd Tuesday
Tuesday pickup

NEXT DATE: September 18th

The BAG Program has arrived to our area. BAG stands for Better Access to Groceries. Partnering with Southern Health, Central Station is inviting you to become part of the program that offers you fresh, affordable produce for your family and table.

Here’s how it works: 1 bag of produce will consist of approximately 5 different varieties of produce at a cost of $10/bag. Varieties may include carrots, onions, apples, lettuce, bananas, etc. We will not know what produce will be in the bag at the time of order as it depends on the deals we are able to purchase at that time. Orders will be ready for pick up every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at Central Station from 3-6 pm beginning October  3rd. Orders will be accepted until 2 pm one week prior to pick up date. Cash payment will be accepted at pickup. More than one bag can be purchased.
