The Upper East Human Development Agency has announced its upcoming commodity distributions in the area.
Commodities will be distributed March 7 at Elizabethton Grace Baptist Church, 1114 Broad St.
Distribution will be Wednesday, March 20, at First Christian Church, 401 W. Main St., Mountain City.
The distribution will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will end at 12 p.m. or earlier if food is no longer available. Items will be distributed through a drive-thru option on a first come, first served basis, to income eligible households until all commodities are gone. This will provide for the safety of recipients as well as the volunteers and staff. Recipients must be residents of Tennessee. This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
Each recipient is encouraged to complete an application the week prior to the date of your distribution. This will reduce your wait time during the distribution. However, staff will be available on site during the distribution if you wish to complete an application the day of the event. If someone is picking up your commodities they must be authorized on your application; limits to pickup are ten (10) orders.
Misrepresentation of need, or sale or exchange of USDA commodities is prohibited and could result in a fine, imprisonment, or both. USDA’s Emergency Food Assistance Program is available to all eligible recipients regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.
