Alzheimer's Services Center to Distribute over 2500 boxes of food to Businesses and NonProfits i
Alzheimer's Services Support Center is now a Food Distribution Site
By: Alzheimer's Services Center
As part of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue announced on April 17, USDA is exercising authority under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to purchase and distribute agricultural products to those in need.
Through this program, USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is partnering with national, regional and local distributors, whose workforces have been significantly impacted by the closure of restaurants, hotels and other food service businesses, to purchase up to $4.5 billion in fresh produce, dairy and meat products from American producers of all sizes.
The program will supply boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and meat products. Distributors package these products into family-sized boxes, then transport them to food banks, community and faith-based organizations, and other non-profits serving Americans in need.
The fourth round of distribution is underway and will make deliveries through December 31, 2020. The ASC will be involved in this fourth round and we will be able to receive up to 4,000 boxes a day!
Our first shipment is scheduled for Friday, November 13, 2020. We plan to distribute the boxes for local families on Friday between the hours of 10:30-3:00pm. Those registered can receive (1 Box per family) for your organization. Please visit www.asc-ga.org to register and rsvp with your intent to participate and indicate how many families you would like to serve.
