As of August 26th, 2021 -
FOODSHARE will be at the back of the parking lot between the Senior Center and the Housing Authority apartments. Patrons will line up and walk around the truck to receive items. Please keep the line moving as the truck as other scheduled keep. We ask patrons to remember to bring a bag or box with you to carry your food as these supplies are not available during the distribution. In addition, the volunteers are not available to carry items for patrons. As this process maybe familiar to some this maybe new for others so patience and understanding will be needed during the first few distributions with this procedure. If you have any questions, please contact 860-429-3315.
