FULTON, NY – On March 10 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 to 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.
Catholic Charities is now using a new system, supported by the Food Bank of CNY, which allows for an easier method of food distribution.
Those in attendance will receive a number from a random drawing that will take place approximately twenty minutes prior to the beginning of the food distribution.
The number will determine that personÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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.
The new system allows for a much more equitable distribution of the food on hand so that those who are unable to wait for hours will still have an equal opportunity to receive food.
Catholic CharitiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ client choice food pantry will close at noon on March 10 in preparation for the food distribution.
The food pantry will re-open at its regular hours on March 11.
Regular hours for Catholic CharitiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ client choice food 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.
