Catholic Charities Announces Fresh Food Distribution

FULTON, NY – On Oct. 13 the Emergency Services Program of Catholic Charities of Oswego County, in cooperation with the Food Bank of Central New York, will sponsor a fresh food distribution.

Fresh foods and produce will be available, free of charge to those in need, from 4 until 6 p.m. or until food is gone.

Please bring your own bags or boxes.

Distribution will be at the Elks Lodge, 57 Pierce Drive.

Those in attendance will receive a number from a random drawing that will take place approximately 20 minutes prior to the beginning of the food distribution.

The number will determine that person’s place in line and alleviate the need for people to come to the food distribution hours in advance to be among the first in line.

Catholic Charities’ client choice food pantry will close at noon on Oct. 13 in preparation for the food distribution.

The food pantry will re-open at its regular hours on Oct. 14.

Regular hours for the pantry are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday, 1:30 to 6 p.m.

The Thrift Shop is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

For more information, call Hoefer at 598-3980.

Catholic Charities of Oswego County serves all people in need regardless of their religious affiliation.

Primary funding sources for Catholic Charities of Oswego County programs are the United Way of Greater Oswego County, the Diocesan Hope Appeal, the County of Oswego and private donations by individuals and local companies and organizations.
