Columbus East Food Pantry distributing packages today

The Columbus East Food Pantry will have a community food distribution from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. today.

You can drive-up for pre-bagged collections of food, with enough for approximately 220 families. The pantry is limiting the distribution to two collections per car after running out of food last month.

Columbus Animal Care Services will also be distributing limited amounts of pet food, and Columbus North senior Will Littrell will be distributing up to two pairs of socks per family for his Senior Project.

The Columbus East Food Pantry is available to the entire community and is not limited to BCSC families.

The pickup point is at door 31 in the west parking lot behind the school near the tennis courts. Vehicles should not enter the west parking lot until after 4 p.m. to ensure student safety during pickups.

The Columbus East Food Pantry is a Gleaners school-based food pantry.
