Carson City Community Center site of commodity food distribution Jan. 15

Friends In Service Helping, or FISH, is distributing free USDA Commodity Foods to Carson City families 9-11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 15 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 Community Center certifying their household’s annual income does not exceed federal poverty guidelines — which are monthly gross income of $1,471.25 for a single and $1,991.25 for a couple. For each additional member, add $520. Anyone declaring overly large families will be asked for proof of family members.

Proof of Carson City residency and a photo identification or driver’s license is required. Food may be picked up for those unable to attend by bringing a signed note from them and their photo identification.

This month’s foods include: canned peaches, pears, green beans, and corn, dry pinto beans, cranberry juice concentrate, frozen orange juice, raisins, canned salmon, and chicken leg quarters.

For more information, call the State of Nevada Department of Agriculture at 775-353-3601, or FISH at 775-882-3474.
