Food items provided by the food bank will be packaged by volunteers from partner organizations. People interested in volunteering to assist in packaging and distributing food are asked to arrive at 8:15 a.m.

Distribution begins at 9:30 a.m., and will consist of a drive-through and a walk-up line.

No registration is required, and guests are asked not to arrive prior to noon, because of traffic concerns.

Catholic Charities and the Regional Food Bank and local community partners have distributed over 2 million pounds of food this year, providing people with fresh, frozen and shelf-stable food items.
