Commodity food to be distributed
Posted: Thursday, July 2, 2009 10:06 pm
Northwest Tennessee Economic Development Council, in cooperation with the States Department of Agriculture, will be distributing commodity foods on Wednesday and Thursday, July 8-9 at the Agency Central Office at 231 South Wilson Street, Dresden. Distribution will be between the hours of 8 a.m.-noon. If your last name begins with L-Z, you will come on Wednesday, July 8 and if your name begins with A-K, you will come on Thursday, July 9.
Everyone picking up commodities must have a dark purple card. We will not take applications on the day the commodities are distributed. There will be no numbers given out before 7 a.m. Everyone is also asked to bring boxes.
Commodity distribution is a first-come, first-served based program. Please be aware that due to a shortage of inventory of some food that is one hand, you may not receive the same numbers of items as someone else in the event a food item runs out.
For more information on the Commodity Food Program, contact Lottie Cooper, County Service Manage, at 364-2272 or go by the Northwest County Service Center at 231 South Wilson Street, Dresden.
