The Delta Network Food Bank will give away approximately 40,000 pounds of frozen chicken from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, March 23, in a drive through distribution at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.
Participants are asked to enter Parking Lot “D” at 10th Avenue and Missouri Street, remain in their vehicles and the food will be handed to them as they drive through. Drivers will exit the parking lot back onto Missouri Street, according to a news release.
To receive food, participants will only need to provide their name, address and telephone number. The food will be available on a first come, first served basis.
“Our intent is to provide food subsidy as we deal with the school closings and the coronavirus pandemic,” according to the release. “Please follow the directions for the distribution as we are trying to limit physical contact.”
This distribution is a partnership between Delta Network Food Bank and Tyson Foods and is a part of their Hunger Relief Projects, according to the release.
Louis Ross is the chief executive officer and Jacqueline Ross is the director of the Delta Network Food Bank, a United Way Partner Agency.
