Please note:

Gates will open at 6 a.m. for cars to line-up; food distribution will start promptly at 9 a.m. and is on a first-come, first-served basis. The gates will be closed after the first 1,000 vehicles.

This event is drive-thru only; no walk-ups will be permitted. Families will be asked to stay in their vehicles throughout the distribution as volunteers place their food in their trunks.

Volunteers will only be able to provide one food package per vehicle. Unfortunately, we cannot accept multiple families per car or we will not know when to close the gates.
