ALBION – Members of the Elks Riders Motorcycle Clubs in Albion and Brockport unload a truck this morning as part of a food distribution in Albion.

The pop-up food distribution was scheduled for Monday but was moved to this morning.

The motorcycle clubs stepped up as volunteers in this morning’s freezing cold after the change in schedule.

Gloria Sammons smiles while getting ready for the distribution. She helps every month at the events, where about 200 people typically receive bags and boxes of food at the village’s municipal parking lot at 165 Platt St.

The parking lot is nearly full with vehicles at about 8:30 this morning. The volunteers parked in front right while the people waiting to be served are in the back right of this photo.

The events in Albion are run by Community Action with food delivered by Foodlink in Rochester.

The schedule through June for Albion includes March 13, March 27, April 10, May 8 and June 12.
