There are three food distributions set for the final three Friday mornings in January. About 300 boxes of food will be given away at the events.

The start times are approximately 8:30 a.m. (If the Foodlink truck is there and unloaded, the event may start sooner.) Organizers are asking people not to line up before 8 a.m. due to possible winter weather conditions.

“We remind people not to block driveways,” said Melissa Blanar, director of the Orleans County office for the Aging, who helps organize the events. “We want to thank all the volunteers, without them there would be no events. Please be patient and kind.”

The schedule includes:

  • January 15th, Community Action Store, 113 South Main Street, Albion
  • January 22nd, Orleans County Cornell Cooperative Extension, 4-H Fairgrounds, 12690 NYS Route 31, Knowlesville, entrance is on Taylor Hill Road and not on Route 31. The line on Taylor Hill will need to go south away from Route 31.
  • January 29th, Community Action Store, 113 South Main Street, Albion
