A free food distribution event is planned for Monday, Aug. 9, in the parking lot of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1515 Fifth Ave. N.W., East Grand Forks.

The drive-thru distribution is set for noon-2 p.m., or until the food runs out.

The event is sponsored by the North Country Food Bank, in partnership with the East Grand Forks Food Shelf.

“Everyone is welcome,” said Scott Johnson, development director for North Country Food Bank. “People can simply drive up and receive food, no questions asked.”

The North Country Food Bank conducts a number of these mobile events each month throughout its service area, 21 counties in northwest and west-central Minnesota and Grand Forks, Johnson said.
