Prodisee Pantry delays food distribution


SPANISH FORT -- Due to the forecast for extremely cold weather, Prodisee Pantry is delaying Tuesday’s food distribution’s start time until 1 p.m.

Baldwin County residents seeking food assistance are asked to stay home Tuesday morning. Prodisee Pantry will open its parking lot at 12:30 p.m. Volunteers are asked to dress for cold weather and and arrive between noon and 12:30 p.m. to prepare for the distribution. Prodisee Pantry’s food distribution Feb. 16 will now be held in the afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m.

“We know many families in our community are food insecure and count on our distributions. But, with COVID-19 protocols our volunteers outside loading food into car trunks for hours, we want to keep them as safe and warm as possible while still helping our neighbors in need. So, that is why we decided to delay rather than cancel tomorrow’s distribution,” said Prodisee Pantry’s Executive Director, Deann Servos.

Anyone wanting more information on how to get help, to give or to volunteer can go to venmo@Prodisee-Pantry or call 251-626-1720.
