Food pantry to hold drive-up food distribution

MEXICO — GRAMPA Food Pantry will hold a drive-up food distribution behind the Mexico Town Hall from 1 to 3 p.m. or until gone on Wednesday, May 20. Rain date is Thursday, May 21. The distribution will be for residents of Mexico, Rumford, Roxbury and Byron who are struggling to have enough to eat. Households will receive a box of shelf stable food and a bag of frozen meat.

People are asked to remain in their vehicles and will be asked to pop the trunk. Pantry volunteers will place the donations in the vehicles.

Traffic will be one way, with cars entering by the Plaza and exiting behind the library. This will keep our workers safer and keep the traffic flowing smoothly.

Hannaford donations are distributed in the parking lot of the “Green Church” from 9:30 to 11 a.m. every Friday and Saturday. If it is wet, distribution will be set up on the ramp by the elevator.

For more information, call Sue at 207-364-8185.
