Food to You Distributions have resumed! We hope you will help us spread the word so families in need know of the resources available to them.
For the time being, our distributions to a "drive-through" model. We will have boxes of food or necessities ready and give them to our guests in the parking lots of our host congregations.
We will deeply miss the wonderful conversations, fellowship, and relationship-building that happen in our normal distributions. However, we feel that given the recommendations of public health professionals, this is the most responsible way we can show our love for our neighbors.

We will continue to monitor the recommendations of public health officials, and adjust our distributions accordingly.***
