The first mobile pantry of 2013 will be held in the parking lot of Oconee County Primary School on Thursday afternoon.
Groceries will be distributed on a first come, first served basis starting at 4 p.m. Families that demonstrate a need -- based on monthly income, number of children, adults and seniors living at home -- will receive a free box of groceries.
The program is made possible through a partnership of the Connecting Point Church and the FoodBank of NEGA.
Mobile food pantries will also be held on the following dates:
- Feb. 14 at Colham Ferry Elementary School
- March 28 at High Shoals Elementary School
