Mobile food pantries return in April
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Feeding Our Communities with United Services (FOCUS) is again partnering with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and the USDA to distribute free boxes of food in April.
The drive-through food pantries will be held every Tuesday – April 6, 13, 20 and 27 – at the Wisconsin Rapids City Garage, 1411 Chase St., Wisconsin Rapids, 10 a.m. – noon, while supplies last. Participants are asked to enter the distribution area off of Clark Street via 16th or 17th Avenue.
“The food boxes will contain produce, meat, and dairy items. Anyone who wishes to participate in the distribution is asked to come starting at 10am to allow volunteers to set-up for the distribution. To help prevent traffic congestion, arriving after 10:30 a.m. is recommended,” a program release stated.
These food boxes are paid for by the USDA. Quantities are limited and will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis. The limit will be one box per vehicle unless the party is also picking up for a home-bound individual.
