The Thermal Belt Outreach (TBO), supported by Manna FoodBank of Asheville, will be distributing perishable vegetables WEDNESDAY, July 14, 2010 at 3:30 4:15 p.m. for those who can use this produce. The food is free of charge and must not be resold.
If you need to pick up produce for someone who cannot come to TBO on this day, we will need a note from that person stating who is picking up the produce for them.&bsp; It must be signed and a telephone number given for verification of this request.
Outreach never knows until the day before distribution how much or which vegetables will be available. Distribution will be in the Food Pantry located at 134 White Drive, Columbus (pass the Columbus Baptist Church on Houston Road, turn left on White Drive before going under the 74 highway bridge). &bsp;
If there are questions, call Outreach at 828-894-2988.&bsp; Clients may also call this number on the day of distribution to learn which vegetables will be available. Participants are asked to bring their own bags or boxes. &bsp;
