Tabernacle Baptist Church will serve as a distribution site for the USDA Truck to Trunk Free Food Box Delivery on Wednesday, June 3. The community effort involving Tabernacle Baptist Church, Carroll County Soup Kitchen, Open Hands United Christian Ministry, Carrollton Baptist Association, Carrollton Police Department, Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, and Dawnbreakers Rotary will join together to help distribute 1,920 boxes of fresh produce to individual households.
According to a press release, volunteers are needed, and should arrive at 8:00 a.m. They will need to supply their own masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer; and they will need to practice social distancing. Parking for volunteers is accessible to the south side of the church on Cottage Hill Road.
Food Box distribution will begin at 10:00 a.m., and guests may enter from the Tabernacle Drive entrance nearest to the Carrollton bypass. Volunteers will direct vehicles to designated spaces that will form 6 lines, leaving a vacant space between cars on both sides. Vehicles will then move forward, one line at a time between the Pre-K covered entrance and playground up the hill for loading without exiting vehicles. Volunteers will load the boxes into vehicle trunks. Once completed, vehicles will exit onto Cottage Hill Road.
Once all 1,920 boxes of fresh produce have been distributed, the Food Box drive will end.
