OLD ORCHARD BEACH — There will be a USDA Food Box Distribution in the Town of Old Orchard Beach on Thursday, Feb. 25 from 10 a.m. to noon — or until boxes are gone — at the Old Orchard Beach Ballpark at7 BallPark Way.

The event is open to anyone in need of food. Quantities are limited; no reservations are required. The distribution will be contactless from “truck to trunk.” Individuals arriving to receive a food box are required to follow all COVID-19 protocol including the use of facemasks.

In a time that has pressured many individuals and families with unforeseen employment loss, financial stress and food insecurity — the needs within our community are great. The town thanks to the USDA Farmer to Family Food Box program, Native Maine and Youthful Maine in partnering with the Town of Old Orchard Beach, The Ballpark of Old Orchard and the OOB Community-Friendly-Connection to feed our community.
