SPANISH FORT, Alabama — Prodisee Pantry in Spanish Fort has announced that volunteers and staff are preparing 80,000 pounds of food for the mass emergency food distribution, scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at 9315 Spanish Fort Blvd., Spanish Fort.
“Prodisee Pantry understands hunger and we are here for every Baldwin County family who is struggling to put food on their table,” according to a release issued Friday.
Each family is asked to bring proof that they live in Baldwin County, a picture identification and their patience as Prodisee Pantry provides basic canned food items.
“If you have stocked up, and have food in your pantry and in your refrigerator, we ask that you stay home and for social media posts for future distribution dates and times,” according to the release. “Prodisee Pantry is prepared. Volunteers have been unloading truckloads full of food, nearly 80,000 pounds. We’ve been blessed with some awesome donations including: sweet potatoes from Edmondson Farm, fruits and assorted produce from Coastal Foods and more will be arriving in time for Tuesdays distribution.”
In the event that the weather is dangerous, Prodisee Pantry will stop distribution, Servos said.
"We take serious the safety of our volunteers and the community," she said. "We will alert the media to future dates and times for distributions."
Anyone wishing to donate can go online to prodiseepantry.org.
“This will help us restock and continue our food distributions. Because ... it’s about hunger at Prodisee Pantry.”
