ALBION – Foodlink will be back soon in Orleans County for two emergency food distributions.

There will be a Foodlink food distribution in Medina on Monday, May 11, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Calvary Cupboard-Calvary Tabernacle Church, 324 Catherine St. People should use the parking lot entrance on Ann Street.

Foodlink and Calvary recently had a food distribution on April 27 in Medina.

Foodlink will return to Albion on May 14 for a distribution in partnership with Community Action of Orleans & Genesee and Orleans County Office for the Aging.

Foodlink has done food distributions in Albion since the Covid-19 pandemic. Those distributions were on Fridays – April 17 and May 1.

The May 14 distribution will be on a Thursday. It will be at the same time, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., as the first two events and at the same location, the Main Street Store at 131 S. Main St. (across from the Hoag Library).

Foodlink has delivered 300 boxes of food during the distributions. This is a drive-through only event with no walk-ins. People must stay in their vehicles, have their ID visible and must not roll down their windows.

The trunk should be cleaned out so the box of emergency food can be put into it. People should have their trunk open and ready. Once the trunk is closed and tapped, people may drive away.

There will be no pre-registration for the event, it is a first-come, first-served.
