June 16, 2020

WATERTOWN, S.D.–Watertown Hy-Vee will give away more than 4,700 free peaches to customers with a contactless, drive-thru event on Wednesday, June 17. The giveaway will start at 10 a.m. and continue until noon, or while supplies last.

In partnership with its fruit supplier SunWest Fruit Company, Hy-Vee is donating fresh produce to Hy-Vee customers as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact individuals and families across South Dakota. Hy-Vee is giving away 20 peaches to the first 230 customers. Approximately 1,300 pounds of fresh produce will be donated.

As more families continue to become financially impacted by the pandemic, Hy-Vee and SunWest Fruit Company believe it’s important to provide access to high-quality produce during this time of need.

Fresh peaches will be distributed to customers for free on a first-come, first-served basis. The giveaway will take place along the west side of the store parking lot. Product will be safely loaded into customer vehicles using a contactless method to minimize physical contact and enforce social distancing.

All event helpers will be wearing masks and gloves for additional safety measures. No walk-ups will be allowed.
