EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)-A local non-profit is holding a drive-thru food box distribution event Sunday.

Lieutenant Loretta Dulay works with the The Salvation Army of Eureka.

“All you have to do is just drive through, bring your I.D. and we will give you a food box,” she said.

Dulay says, the Midwest Food Bank donated a large shipment of about 500 boxes of food and supplies to the Salvation of Army of Eureka.

Each box contains a variety of items ranging from canned goods, to pasta, to paper goods.   

Boxes will be given-away on a first come, first serve basis, and only one box per vehicle will be allotted.

Salvation Army staff asks participants to enter the second driveway and follow route to event – without blocking the driveway.

Dulay says, the demand for food has not waned.

“There is still a high demand for food, I mean people are still out of work, still recuperating from the time they were off,” she said. “Christmas is coming, so you there’s always going to be a need.”

The event will be held at the Eureka Corps Center of the Salvation Army from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.
