MEDINA – The food distribution next Friday morning in Medina will shift from the high school to the Ridgeway Fire Hall, 11392 Ridge Rd.

The entrance will be on Horan Road and the line will be facing north towards Ridge Road, where vehicles will exit.

There will also be a food distribution tomorrow, Sept. 11, in Albion at the same location as previous Albion distributions – the Community Action Main Street Store at 131 Main St.

In the Albion event, Community Action of Orleans & Genesee has partnered with Foodlink and Orleans County Office for the Aging to provide households with boxes of emergency food in response to the Covid-19 public health crisis.

The events are advertised to start at 9 but could begin earlier if the delivery trucks and volunteers are in place.

This is a drive-thru model with no walk-ins. People should have their trunks cleaned out so boxes of emergency food can be put into it.

There is no pre-registration. It is a first-come, first-served basis with boxes for about 300 vehicles.

With the Medina event, the office for the Aging and Foodlink partner with the Calvary Cupboard at Calvary Tabernacle Church to distribute the food.
