Greetings Everyone.

We are happy to be able to continue to serve the Zimmerman and Princeton communities with food distributions.  Please note, only authorized personnel will be allowed in the distribution center, our doors will be locked, and no clients will be allowed inside. Food will be prepackaged and clients arriving Saturday mornings will be instructed to line up on 5th Street West, not enter the parking lot, and not get out of their cars. A volunteer will meet clients at their vehicles and will fill out the application for them. Clients don't need to touch the applications and will not be asked to sign them. When the clients' number comes up, they will be instructed to drive up to the big door and a volunteer will load their food.


Thank you for your understanding - Remember, we are all in this together, and we'll make it through together. 


God Bless.
