Crestview food distribution Thursday

Pantry(5250)CRESTVIEW, Fla., June 22, 2020—The Macedonia Community Development Cooperation will distribute 25-pound boxes of healthy fruit and vegetables Thursday beginning at 8 a.m. until all the produce has been given away.

Working in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, this is Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church’s second food giveaway during the coronavirus outbreak and will take place at the church, 603 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. in Crestview.

“We’re distributing the food on a first-come, first-served basis,” church Deacon Donald Jernigan said. “Each family represented will receive a box of U.S.D.A. sponsored produce until the supply is gone.”

“Even though Crestview has been reopening, many families in our community are still affected by the previous closures, job losses and furloughs,” Mayor J.B. Whitten said. “We greatly appreciate members of our community like Macedonia Church who step up to help our citizens.”

In case of rain, the produce distribution will be July 2 at 8 a.m. at the church.

Brian Hughes, Public Information Officer, City of Crestview
