Commodity food distribution planned at Carson City Community Center

Friends In Service Helping, or FISH, will distribute free USDA commodity foods to Carson City families from 9 to 11 a.m. March 20 at the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St. No one will be admitted before 9 a.m.

Families must sign an issuance sheet at the Carson City Community Center certifying household’s annual income does not exceed federal poverty guidelines which are monthly gross income of $1,458.75 for a single and $1,966.25 for a couple. For each additional household member, add $507.50.

Proof of Carson City residency is required, and photo identification must be provided. Food may be picked up for the home bound or those unable to attend by bringing a signed note from them and their photo identification. Persons declaring overly large families for commodities will be asked for proof of family members.

FISH and the State Commodity Food Program order all food that’s available. This month’s commodity foods include: canned pears, mixed fruit, canned peas, diced tomatoes, grape juice and frozen ham.
