Food Distribution

Every 2nd Thursday of the month at 2pm we will be distributing boxes of food at our Burkey Center located at 2440 W Henderson Ave. Just a reminder that due to the amount of food given out at our distribution and weight of the items we ask that if possible families bring a cart or wagon to carry their boxes back to their vehicles. We have limited amount of wagons to assist families which can at times hold up the wait time in the line.  Please be prepared to carry those items to your vehicle. Thank you!
