Photo by Tom Rivers: Employees at Community Action of Orleans & Genesee distributed 300 boxes of food on Friday in Albion. The boxes have 25 pounds of canned and boxed food that are nonperishable.

Foodlink will be back in Orleans County soon to distribute boxes of food to local families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Foodlink will be doing a distribution in Medina on April 27 at the Calvary Tabernacle Church, 324 Catherine St. (the old Medina High School).

This will be a drive-up only option from 3 to 5 p.m., with one box of food per vehicle. The parking lot will open to vehicle at 3 p.m.

There will be a walk-up outdoor food distribution the following day, April 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at Calvary Tabernacle.

Community Action also will be hosting its second distribution on May 1 from 9:30 to 11:30 at the Main Street Store on South Main Street, across from Hoag Library.

The agency was able to distribute 300 boxes of food on Friday during its first distribution with Food Link. Those boxes were all gone by 10:45 a.m.

No pre-registration is required. The food is offered on a first come, first served basis.

Drivers and passengers all have to stay in the vehicles with the windows closed. They pull up with the trunks open. When the food is put in the trunk and closed, the trunk is tapped to notify people to drive away.
