Free Food Box Giveaway in Atlantic

Name: Free Food Box Giveaway in Atlantic
Date: April 13, 2021
Time: 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
This free drive-through event is open to anyone who needs an extra box of food. You don't have to be from Atlantic. There are no income restrictions or documentation required.
Farmers to Families Food Boxes include 10 pounds of fresh produce, 5 pounds of pre-cooked meat, and 5 pounds of dairy with a gallon of milk.
You make take an extra box or two for friends or neighbors who can't make it to the event if you can deliver to them, but please be aware that this food is perishable and won't store for long. Please take only what can be used quickly.
The Cass County Community Center is the big building up the hill on the fairgrounds (just up the hill from Sunnyside Pool).
Lastly: most of our mobile pantries distribute fewer than 200 boxes of food. Because of how this program is organized, we are receiving 600 boxes of food. Therefore, partner organizations will help us distribute the food to those in need across Cass County. Some of these partner organizations will pick up food before the public distribution at 3:00 PM, so that the food remains cold and gets to people on the 13th. However, we will make sure we have more boxes available for the 3 PM drive through this time.
Huge thank you to partner organizations and volunteers that make it possible for us to distribute all of this food in one day!
