Hy-Vee in partnership with the United Way of Greater Fort Dodge are giving away free
jumbo, seedless watermelons to customers at the Fort Dodge Hy-Vee Tuesday April 21st . The giveaway will start at 10 AM and continue until noon, or while supplies last.
In collaboration with its melon supplier Sol Group, Hy-Vee is donating nearly 2,000 jumbo watermelons to Hy-Vee customers as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact individuals and families across Iowa. United Way of Greater Fort Dodge will also be handing out directories of resources and local services that are providing a wide-range of assistance to people and families that are coping with the negative impact of COVID-19.
Watermelons will be distributed to customers on a first-come, first-served basis using a drive-thru lane in the Fort Dodge Hy-Vee parking lot. Watermelons will be loaded directly into customer vehicles on the south side of the building to limit physical contact. All event helpers will be wearing masks and
gloves for additional safety measures. One watermelon will be loaded into each vehicle, and no walk-ups will be allowed.
