Other Changes for 2023
- Distribution of the meals will be done over two days this year instead of one. Distribution this year will be on Friday Nov 17th from 3pm to 7pm and then on Saturday Nov 18th from 10am to 4pm.
- We will still have our normal Saturday food distribution on Saturday November 18th.
- This year, we are offing a Hybrid system for Thanksgiving Boxes. You can choose the prepacked method, which will be picked up in a Drive thru style in the back of the commercial building. You will still get a meat choice, however everything else is prepacked. If you receive Items you don’t want or need please return them to Pantry 279 at our regular location. OR you can park and come in the front of the commercial building and choose everything for your box. This way you don’t have to take anything you don’t want or can’t use. We will have volunteers to help carry your box and help you to your car.
- We continue to offer delivery for as many families as we can for those who are home-bound due to illness, disability, or lack of transportation.
- Delivery covers only Bloomington, Ellettsville, Stinesville, Gosport and Spencer.
- Deliveries will be done all day on Thursday Nov 16th and possibly on the morning of the 17th if they can’t all be finished on Thursday
- You must be home and accept the food when it is delivered.
- No deliveries will be left at the door, on the porch, etc.
- There will be no re-deliveries
