Commodities distribution set for May 21

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

U.S. Department of Agriculture commodities will be distributed May 21 at the National Guard Armory.

To receive a box of commodities, recipients must have a new orange commodities card that should be obtained this week.

The cards may be obtained at the South Central Human Resources Agency office at 1572 Old Columbia Highway. For more information, call Juli Belcher or Hazel Harmon at 359-6393.

Distribution hours are 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday next week.

The agency asks that recipients come with someone who can help load the boxes since there's a lack of volunteers during the distribution.
