Action Church is sponsoring a food distribution event to those in need on Saturday October 17 at East Ridge Elementary School on John Ross Road.
Action Church Pastor Daniel Beard is calling the event “From Truck to Trunk.” It will begin at 10 a.m. Beard said he is receiving more than 2,000 pre-packaged 30-pound food boxes that consists of meat, produce and dairy. The boxes will be delivered via refrigerated truck and unloaded from the truck to a person’s trunk by staff members.
“Our heart is to help people in our community and we are thankful that we can help in this season of great need,” Beard said in a press release. “We will be there giving out boxes until the supplies run out.”
Beard said individuals receiving the food boxes will not have to leave their car.
For those participating, pull into the parking lot of the school at 1014 John Ross Rd. and follow the signs and cones and volunteers will direct the motorist to a lane to receive a box of free food.
