Food distribution offered today

RSVP Carson City volunteers will distribute free USDA Commodity Foods from 9-11 a.m. today at the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.

This month’s commodity foods include apple juice, tomato soup, cherry apple juice, baby lima beans, canned pork, canned pears, canned apple sauce, frozen pork patties, cheddar cheese soup, and peanut butter.

Any needy family in Carson City can be eligible by signing the Issuance Sheet at the community center, certifying that their household’s annual income does not exceed 150 percent of the federal poverty guidelines.

Income guidelines currently are $20,036 for a single and $26,955 for a couple. A picture ID/drivers license must be provided. Food may be picked up for the homebound or those unable to attend by bringing a signed note from them and their picture ID.

RSVP and the State Commodity Food Program order all food that is available; however, if the food runs out, it is because we could not obtain more.

For more information, call the State of Nevada Food Distribution Program at 688-2828 or the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program at 687-4680 ext. 0.
