    USDA Farmers-To-Families Food Box Program
    USDA Farmers-to-Families Food Boxes, containing fresh fruits and
    vegetables, will be given away at Oglethorpe County Middle School on
    Tuesday, June 9, 2020. The boxes are packed and delivered by Collins
    Brothers Produce. We will begin at 11:00AM and hope to be finished by
    Although the schools, local food banks, and Oglethorpe County Lions Club
    are sponsoring this, these boxes are available to ALL Oglethorpe County
    residents who are experiencing food insecurities. Please tell your churches
    and neighbors.
    This is a “no contact” project delivered from “truck to trunk”. You will come
    to the car lineup, pop your trunk, and receive your box or boxes depending on
    the size of your family. Please make certain that the trunk is cleared to make
    space for the boxes. Do not get out of your car. All volunteers will be wearing
    masks and gloves to prevent the spread of Covid-19 virus.
    The box weighs approximately 20 pounds and contains potatoes, sweet
    potatoes,onions, carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, lemons, oranges and apples.
    Contents may vary.
