The event will coincide with the annual parade, which begins at 5 p.m. Wednesday downtown. The free food will be available at the Shops of Tryon parking lot downtown. 

The Tryon Fire Department coordinates the annual parade, which draws hundreds to downtown. 

This year’s feeding the community event is being sponsored by Polk Fit, Fresh and Friendly, Dr. Brad Whitney and the Thermal Belt Friendship Council. 

Anyone who is able is encouraged to bring large jars of peanut butter as a donation this year for Thermal Belt Outreach.
