Tuesday, January 07, 2014 - Clinton County food project holds open distribution Jan. 9

The Clinton County Open Food Distribution Project distributes food for Clinton County families in need on the second Thursday of each month at the Bath Community Center, 5959 Park Lake Road in Bath.

The next distribution date is Thursday, Jan. 9.

Registration for distribution takes place from 8 to 9 a.m. at the site. Distribution begins around 9 a.m. and continues for approximately one hour. Participants are asked to bring their own boxes, bags, containers, wheeled carts or wagons.

Those who can benefit from this service include senior citizens on fixed incomes, families and individuals with limited incomes or working minimum wage jobs as well as those who must choose between purchasing groceries or fulfilling medical needs. Each family receives $50 to $65 worth of food.

Call Clinton Transit at 989.224.8127 or 800.800.5938 for transportation assistance. Requests for transport must be made by 2 p.m. the day before an event.

The distribution serves as many as 150 families each month, so financial contributions to benefit the project are welcome.

For more information about sponsorship, donations and volunteer opportunities or future distribution dates, call the Sparrow Clinton Hospital Foundation at 989.227.3333.
