Perishable Food stop in Parshall, New Town
Trucks supplying fresh vegetables, bakery items and boxed goods will be stopping in the communities of Parshall and New Town on Wednesday, July 24, as part of the Great Plains Food Bank Pop-up Perishable Food Program. Anyone in need of food assistance is welcome to attend and receive food at no cost.
The Pop-up Perishable Food Program will stop July 24, in Parshall at Red Hall (Second Street Northeast) from 12-2 p.m. and in New Town in the parking lot in front of the Northern Lights Wellness Center (404 Frontage Road) from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Both distributions will operate as a drive-through format where clients will be able to stay in their vehicles when collecting the food they need. Those who are walking will be help accordingly.
“Many of our clients live in rural areas and we understand the importance of making fresh and nutritious food readily available,” said Rachel Monge, who serves as regional service manager for the Great Plains Food Bank for western North Dakota. “Our Mobile Food Pantry and Pop-up Perishable Food Program bring trucks full of food directly into these communities and gives them a convenient opportunity to get the food they need.”
