Commodity distributions scheduled

September 21, 2006

The Salvation Army will be distributing commodities through the federal Emergency Food Assistance Program later this month, according to a news release from the organization.

Three distributions have been set up:

¢ 9 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Sept. 28, Salvation Army, 600 Walnut St., Leavenworth;

¢ 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 26, Pleasant Village, 711 Pleasant, Tonganoxie;

¢ 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 26, Methodist Church Hall, Fourth and Riley streets, Easton.

These will mark the final commodity distributions of the year, the Salvation Army said.

Participants who have not received commodities this year will need to bring a picture ID, proof of residency, proof of income and Social Security Cards for all family members. There will be no exceptions.

Those seeking commodities are advised to bring containers.

Participants are asked to go to the site closest to the town in which they live.

The Emergency Food Assistance Program distributes foods donated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to help improve the diets of persons in need of food assistance. The program allows nonprofit agencies to distribute commodities to needy Americans, including low income and unemployed persons, for household use.

The foods are free; recipients must meet eligibility requirements.
