USDA Commodity Food Boxes for Howard County residents will be distributed Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 9-11 a.m. or until all boxes have been distributed.
The distribution will be directly from the back of the truck parked at the Sunset Church of Christ located at 1420 W. Sunset St. in Nashville.
There are new procedures: Recipients must come inside the Fellowship Building located behind the church to check in first. Once checked in, recipients will go back to their vehicle and proceed to line up along in the church parking lot and wait for further instructions. Volunteers will be on hand to assist.
Recipients must bring updated drivers license with current address or photo identification verifying they are a resident of Howard County. Proof of address is required. Distribution is limited to one box per household and two households per vehicle.
Arkansas Minority Health Commission will have a mobile health unit at the mobile pantry and will be offering free cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose, BMI, and oxygen/pulse checks. They will also provide other health education.
