Mark your calendars! Golden Harvest Food Bank’s mobile pantry will be on hand this Friday, March 12, at Garfield Fire Department. Hours will be 1 to 3 p.m.
Food will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limit of two households per vehicle. Items will be placed inside the vehicle’s trunk, so patrons should be sure the trunk is empty.
To receive food, patrons will need to reside in Georgia, complete an Emergency Food Assistance Application Form, and provide a photo ID.
This is a USA TEFAP Commodities food distribution for families and individuals that meet the federal poverty income guidelines.
