Commodities will be distributed by Northwest Tennessee Economic Development Council, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 9 a.m.-noon at the following locations:
• South Fulton’s Municipal Complex Monday for recipients from South Fulton;
• Hornbeak City Hall Tuesday for recipients from Hornbeak and Samburg;
• Obion Community Center Wednesday for recipients from Obion:
• Thursday at the Union City office at 1015 East College St. for Union City and Kenton recipients. Distribution will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
For more information, call Sarah Kay at 885-0462 or go by the office.
Those hoping to receive food must have a pink card. Those who do not have the card must bring proper proof or income for everyone living in the household. No applications will be accepted without verification.
Because of a shortage of inventory, some food items may run out before everyone receives the same number, a spokesman said. NWTEDC will no longer provide boxes and no longer come to individual towns. These changes will be noted for participants when they recertify in March.
NWTEDC is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate in services to clients on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, age, national origin or disabilities.
