Bucks County Opportunity Council adds Fresh Connect location


The Bucks County Opportunity Council recently announced a new location in Upper Bucks County for its free farmers market – Fresh Connect – as well as each location’s hours.

Each week, on the same day and at the same time, the agency provides healthy food to some 44,000 county residents facing hunger, 34% of whom are children, according to BCOC.

Fresh Connect hours are as follows, or until the food is gone.

– Tuesdays in Warminster, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., 1100 Veterans Way, Warminster, drive-thru;

– Wednesdays in Quakertown, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Quakertown Memorial Park, 600 W. Mill Road, Quakertown, walk-thru;

– The first and third Thursday of each month in Palisades, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Palisades Middle School, 4710 Durham Road, Kintnersvile, drive-thru;

– Fridays in Bristol, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Gene and Marlene Epstein Campus – Lower Bucks Campus-Bucks County Community College, 1304 Veterans Highway, Bristol, drive-thru.

All Fresh Connect participants must pre-register and qualify. There is a limit of one registration per household.

Once an application is approved, each participant receives a keycard. It must be brought each time one comes to Fresh Connect.
