From The Grundy County Food Bank

Posted on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 8:51 am

The new “circle” format at the Grundy County Food Bank in Tracy City seems to be working great for everyone. Recipients now have choices of several of the products and due to our new hours we can serve everyone quicker. The Food Bank is open each and every Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Recipients can only come once each and every month. 

It’s important to note that only one pickup per household address will be allotted. In order to further streamline our distribution process, we will still allow pickups for other households of those that cannot come in and have already completed all the USDA paperwork. The person picking up will have to shop for themselves first and then come back through the line and shop for the other household. This will help with delays in the line and with difficulty trying to manage two carts at the same time. Our goal is to safely serve all deserving recipients.

 If you are not sure if you qualify for Food Bank assistance, please feel free to stop by or call 592-3631.

We would also like to extend a huge Thank You to those of you who contribute funds or food to such a great cause, and to those of you that volunteer your time to help keep this wonderful organization growing.  Thank you to Jim Myers who has provided a building that allows us to handle a large quantity of food and so many clients.
