OROVILLE, Calif. - The Community Action Agency of Butte County, Inc. (CAA) North State Food Bank will hold a County Food Expansion Program Distribution event on Friday, April 16.

The food distribution will be held at the Nelson Sports Complex located at 2290 6th Street, Oroville, CA. The distribution begins at 10 a.m. and ends at noon, or until supplies run out.

The event is free. Food is made possible by funding from the State and County to assist families impacted by COVID-19.

“We’ve organized a drive-through event using pre-boxed food to help protect those in need of food and our volunteers to the maximum extent” Tom Dearmore, CAA Community Services Manager for the North State Food Bank said.

Participants are requested to please remain in their vehicles.

The food boxes include healthy, shelf-stable and perishable food depending on seasonal availability, the CAA said. Boxes weighing between 12 to 17 pounds will be placed by volunteers into vehicles attending.

Dense fog has developed across parts of northern California Monday morning and the potential for light showers will return today. We'll dry out and warm up on Tuesday, but more cool and wet weather is expected mid week. A more substantial wet system is currently projected to move into our region this weekend.
