Delaware Opportunities to distribute surplus food Aug. 27

Hamden — Delaware Opportunities will be conducting a distribution of surplus donated food to Delaware County residents on Friday, Aug. 27 starting at 11 a.m. until all food is distributed.

The distribution will take place in the parking lot behind Delaware Opportunities headquarters located at 35430 state Highway 10 in Hamden. The food will be provided by the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.

The type of food available will not be known until the day of distribution. Proof of income is not required; however, information on the number of children and adults in each household receiving donated food will be requested. Households at the distribution may pick up food for one additional household providing they have a note from that household.

People participating should bring their own boxes and/or bags and dress for the weather as there is no indoor space available for those waiting for food.
