CHICO, Calif. – The Community Action Agency (CAA) will distribute food to the public at a “tailgate” event, scheduled for Friday, July 10.
It will be held in the parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, located at 735 W. East Ave. in Chico. The giveaway will be held from 9 a.m. to noon or until supplies of food run out, the CAA said in a news release.
The CAA North State Food Bank will give away bags of fresh produce from the California Salinas Valley, along with food under the new USDA farmer-to-families food box program. The food is pre-boxed in amounts of 12 pounds, estimated to feed a family of up to four people for a four-day period, the CAA shared.
Food boxes will be put into the vehicles for people who drive through the line at the event. The drive-through method is intended to provide maximum protection to members of the public during the concern over coronavirus.
