GLADWIN COUNTY – There was a Gladwin/Beaverton Community Food Distribution (GBCFD) on Saturday, February 6 in the parking lot of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Gladwin. Approximately 13,000 pounds of food from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan was passed out to 245 households. This distribution would not have been possible without all the volunteers coming from Christ the King Lutheran Church, Our Savior Lutheran Church in Gladwin, St. Paul Episcopal Church in Gladwin, Knights of Columbus, Cert, and the community. A hearty thank you goes out to all who made this food distribution possible, including the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
The Gladwin/Beaverton Community Food Distribution will be holding it’s next distribution on Saturday, February 20 at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 600 S. M-18, Gladwin. Pre-registration is not required for this distribution.
The handing out of food, etc. will begin around 9:30 a.m. The Knights of Columbus Hall parking lot on M-18 will be used for staging cars to eliminate a back-up on the highway, starting at 7:30 a.m. If you are picking up for someone else, a copy of their ID is needed. Food recipients are asked to stay in their vehicles and are to have the trunk or rear area of their vehicles clear as food will only be put in those areas. If those areas are not accessible, recipients will be asked to load their own vehicles.
During this COVID-19 crisis, GBCFD is respecting the safety and health of food recipients as well as workers.
