The Hastings Fresh Food Initiative food distribution is held every Wednesday at the Green Street United Methodist Church parking lot. Distribution continues to be a drive up style until further notice. A delayed distribution will now start at 10:00a.m. and run until 11:00a.m.. (this is a change from operating until 11:30am) The Barry County United Way Volunteers have become effective in the distribution. They are also eliminating an alphabetical time frame so everyone can come between 10:00am and 11:00am.
A volunteer will meet you at your car at the designated entrance into the parking lot to have you complete the necessary paperwork, you will then move forward in the line to hand off your paperwork and receive your bag of food and exit the parking lot. This program is non-qualifing, one bag per household and you must be a Barry County resident.
This program is directed by Barry County United Way for more information call 269-945-4010. If you are in need of additional food resources call 211.
