Marion County SNAP-Ed in partnership with the West Alabama Food Bank will provide free food—including fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, breads and more—to 175 families at drive-through food banks on three more occasions this year, including once more in Bear Creek.
- Nov. 3, Guin National Guard Armory
- Nov. 8, Hackleburg Schools
- Dec. 6, Phillips Schools’ Attie Fleming Building in Bear Creek (rescheduled from Oct. 27)
All distributions will take place from 9-11 a.m. To reduce disruptions in traffic flow, no cars should line up before 9 a.m. Do be in line by 9:30 a.m., as all food has been distributed within about an hour at previous events. Food will be available for only the first 175 vehicles, and there are usually more than that in line.
There is no eligibility requirement. It’s as easy as showing up and opening your trunk or back door. The food will be loaded for you.
For more information, contact Ginger Eatman at the Marion County Extension Office at (205) 921-3551. Also, let her know if your Marion County organization is interested in participating in food banks in 2023.
