Mobile Pantry Planned Thursday at Oconee Primary School

Free boxes of groceries will be distributed from 4-6 p.m.

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
