You should only attend the mobile held in the county where you live and you should bring a photo ID and piece of mail to show proof of residence. Patrons should visit only one mobile per month and receive only one box per household.

These will be drive-thru distributions, so the food bank said people should stay in their vehicle but have a space cleared for a box of food.
