BATON ROUGE GREEN’S CITY CITRUS PICK EVENT RESCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15TH
BATON ROUGE, LA – Baton Rouge Green’s fifth annual City Citrus Pick Event, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 8, is being rescheduled due to inclement weather. The event will take place next Saturday, December 15th. All other times and locations will be the same.
“We don’t want our Pick volunteers on the roads tomorrow morning during what is predicted to be tremendous rainfall and localized flooding. Luckily our friends at the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank are of the same mind and are happy to help push our event to next week,” said Sage Foley, Executive Director of Baton Rouge Green.
The Baton Rouge Green City Citrus Pick Event is sponsored by Lamar Advertising and Bofinger’s Tree Service and benefits the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
“We are very thankful to Baton Rouge Green and City Citrus for putting together this pick event each year because it provides fresh donated citrus to our clients. We know that the more fresh fruits and produce we can distribute leads to better outcomes for those in need,” explains Mike Manning, President and CEO of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank.
