Free food drive-thru event today in Clayton

WHAT:   The Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (C.F.A.P.) and Nourish New York government-funded grants have made it possible for community organizations to provide much needed food to those in need.

WHO:   American Dairy Association North East is working with USDA-approved vendor Renzi Foodservice, along with community organization recipients — the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Clayton, as well as additional community partners — to help distribute more than 21,000 pounds of food through a local drive-thru event. There will be 360 boxes each of meat, produce, and dairy items, each containing 20 pounds of products. Each vehicle will receive one of each box, while supplies last.

WHERE/WHEN:  Cerow Recreation Park (615 E Line Rd., Clayton, N.Y., 13624) on Friday, September 11 beginning at 10:00 a.m.

HOW:   To ensure the safety and health of all involved in the distribution, there will be a drive-thru distribution process for this event. All drivers and passengers must remain in their vehicles and will be prompted to open their trunk to receive food products. If cars do not have a trunk, they will be prompted to open their window. Walk-ups will not be permitted. No registration or paperwork is required for this distribution.

WHY:  Dairy foods are an important source of essential nutrients. Local dairy farmers are committed to producing wholesome, nourishing milk for families throughout the community.
