ANSONIA, OH -- Shared Harvest Foodbank, in partnership with the Ohio Army National Guard and Ohio Reserves, will host a “drive-thru” food distribution at Ansonia Local Schools, June 17th.

The Ohio Army National Guard is again preparing food boxes for Darke County families at the foodbank.

All Darke County residents in need of food are welcome to attend this event and receive food. No pre-registration is required to receive food.  Anyone picking up food should drive to the distribution site during the appropriate hours.  People receiving food need to stay in their vehicles while being loaded and be patient as we work to get everyone the food they need. 

If someone is picking up on behalf of a friend or loved one, they will need to complete the attached proxy form (see below). This is different from our prior distributions.

We will be using mobile technology to capture basic client information such as name, address, phone number, and a count of people living in the home but it is self-attestation.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 17th, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Ansonia Local School Parking Lot, 600 East Canal St., Ansonia OH 45303
