OSWEGO — The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (C.F.A.P.) and Nourish New York government-funded grants have made it possible for community organizations to provide much needed food to those in need.
American Dairy Association North East is working with USDA-approved vendor Renzi Foodservice, along with community organization recipients — Oswego County, United Way of Oswego County and Oswego Speedway, as well as additional community partners — to help distribute more than 32,000 pounds of food through a local drive-thru event. There will be 450 boxes of produce, 585 boxes of meat, and 585 boxes of dairy items, each containing 20 pounds of products. Each vehicle will receive one of each box, while supplies last.
The event will begin at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10 at the Oswego Speedway, 300 E. Albany St., Oswego. Recipients will enter from City Line Road and exit onto East Albany Street.
To ensure the safety and health of all involved in the distribution, there will be a drive-thru distribution process for this event. All drivers and passengers must remain in their vehicles and will be prompted to open their trunk to receive food products. If cars do not have a trunk, they will be prompted to open their window. Walk-ups will not be permitted. No registration or paperwork is required for this distribution.
