Food Giveaway Planned for Families Hit by COVID
The Evansville chapter of the Salvation Army is sponsoring a drive-through food event Tuesday.
The Salvation Army says the food distribution is set for Tuesday, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., at the organization’s facility at 1040 N. Fulton Avenue.
In a release, the not-for-profit says the food is for families that have been affected by the COVID-19 virus, including shutdowns or other circumstances.
You’ll need a picture I.D. to prove you are “head of household” and no more than two families per vehicle will be served.
The Salvation Army also asks that your vehicle’s trunk be empty, so food items can be placed there.
The group says it will be giving out Farmers to Families produce boxes and dairy boxes, boxes of household staple items, bread, pastry, frozen meat, cheese, and milk.
The Salvation Army’s regular pantry schedule will continue to take place for other clients on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
Sponsors of the food distribution include the Tri-State Food Bank and the USDA.
