Huge bins of watermelons, cantaloupes, bell peppers and tomatoes have arrived. They were delivered to the Grange Hall this afternoon from Woodland and are free for fire evacuees. The general public is also welcome to share in the bounty, with a donation to the fire relief effort at the Grange.

The fresh produce was grown and harvested by Bayer, through its crop science program. One of its employees has ties to the area.
