Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee is conducting a food distribution on Saturday, June 6, at Ellenton Premium Outlets for up to 1,000 families. During the event, Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee will also be collecting food to help meet the continued needs in our community for those impacted by COVID-19.

This drive-through food distribution and food collection event will involve limited-contact with volunteers and staff to maintain social distancing.  Any non-perishable food items will be accepted for the food collection. For safety, the collected items will remain in quarantine for 72 hours before being wiped down and distributed back into the community via The Food Bank of Manatee’s partner agencies. Those in need of food will receive a box with supplies to feed a family of five breakfast, lunch, and dinner for several days.  Food for these 1,000 families will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
