ALBION – Andrew Dreschel, a senior at Holley, volunteered this morning in Albion with a food distribution at the Main Street Store parking lot.

Today the number of boxes per vehicle was reduced from three to 1, with each vehicle also given additional bags of peppers and romaine lettuce.

The boxes contained about 30-40 pounds with 10-12 pounds of produce, 5-6 pounds of dairy, 5-6 pounds of meat and a gallon of milk.

There was a long line of vehicles down Main Street. The line started on Chamberlain Street, went down McKinstry Street, East Park and then on Main Street. The next distribution in Albion on Oct. 30 may be moved to Bullard Park to help with the traffic congestion on Main Street.

The schedule for the rest of October includes:

  • Friday, October 9th – no delivery this week
