Foodbank to host drive-thru mass food distribution at Dixie Twin Drive-In today

A drive-thru mass food distribution by The Foodbank Inc. will be in Harrison Twp. today to support area residents in need of food assistance.

The distribution is 10 a.m. to noon at the Dixie Twin Drive-In at 6201 N. Dixie Drive.

Proteins, grains, fresh produce and other products will be available free of charge for people in need. Do not arrive before 9 a.m. for food preparation and safety purposes.

The Foodbank said this holiday distribution will be providing whole chicken fryers instead of turkeys.

CareSource will sponsor the event and volunteer their time to help pass out the food.

“The north Dayton area, heavily affected by the 2019 Memorial Day, the COVID-19 pandemic and persistent inflation, remains a priority for us,” Michelle L. Riley, CEO of The Foodbank, said. “We’re thankful for our partnership with CareSource, addressing the heightened rate of food insecurity in north Dayton and providing much-needed support to families as we enter the holiday season.”

The mass food distributions are in addition to The Foodbank’s weekly drive-thru as well as the mobile pantry program, which hosts distribution events across Montgomery, Greene and Preble counties each month.

Questions about the food distribution can be directed to The Foodbank, 937-461-0265.
