Due to the overwhelming response from the community, Foodshare will continue its drive-thru food distribution on weekdays at Rentschler field for the next two weeks.
“Since the start of our distribution this past Monday we have served an average of nearly 1000 cars per day,” said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO of Foodshare. “We have seen first-hand that our neighbors need our help, and for that reason we have made the decision to extend this food distribution so that no one in our community goes hungry.”
Important information regarding the distribution:
Distribution dates: Monday, April 27 through Friday, May 1; Monday, May 4 through Friday, May 8
