TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Slight changes are being made to the hours the Community Food Bank distributes emergency food.

According to a news release, Tucson residents can still receive food three times a week, but the new times will be 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Food will be distributed every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the Food Bank’s warehouse at 3003 S. Country Club beginning Tuesday, March 2.

“We’re continuing to evaluate how best to use our available resources during this pandemic,” said Michael McDonald, CEO of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. “We do have a healthy supply of food available and welcome anyone in need to come to our Country Club location during distribution hours.”

Food distribution continues to operate in a drive-through manner to follow COVID precautions.

People are asked to bring a photo ID. Volunteers and National Guard service members help to load the non-perishables, produce, bread, and other items directly into people’s cars. There is also a provision for people walking, using public transit, or riding a bike.
