FARMERS TO FAMILIES FOOD BOX DISTRIBUTIONS

Welcome!

To reduce wait times and improve your experience picking up food, everyone is required to pre-register to receive food at a Farmers to Families event. Please take a few minutes to complete the simple, four-question survey below to register for your food box before going to the next food distribution site. Thank you for your help making this run smoothly!

Each separate registration is limited to food for one household. However, we encourage people to pick up for others who may lack transportation. If you want to pick up for another household, they can make a reservation or you can make a separate reservation for them. When you arrive at the site, give the greeter all the names used for the registrations you're picking up and you will be able to get multiple sets of food.

Locations:

Events will take place daily throughout the state during October. Distributions are currently posted through mid-October. The program will continue until the end of October. Please check back as we will continue to post future distributions as they are confirmed.
