VFW Post 2166 and the Post Auxiliary are partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank to conduct a food distribution for veterans and their families in need of assistance on Friday, July 12, at 2 p.m. The event will take place at the VFW Post located at 2001 West Elk Ave.

Those attending the food distribution are asked to ensure there is room in their trunk for the food box and to pop their trunk upon arrival in the line at the post. They can remain in their car, and the food box will be loaded for them. The distribution will be conducted with no person-to-person contact to protect everyone’s health.

Second Harvest has requested an approximate number of food boxes needed, so participants are encouraged to call David Batchelder at the Carter County Veterans Service Office at 542-1824 to sign up. This will help ensure that there is adequate food available for all those in need.
