The following information was provided by Feeding the Gulf Coast:

On September 12, Feeding the Gulf Coast along with the Mobile County Commission will  distribute over 90,000 pounds of fresh produce, dry goods and protein to 1,500 individuals and families at  Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The distribution, which will operate in a drive-through style to minimize contact for both  clients and workers, was set up by Mobile County Commission in partnership with Feeding the Gulf Coast and  United Way of Southwest Alabama to address the dramatic increase in local need for food assistance and help  raise awareness of the 2020 Census.  

There is no need for individuals to pre-register; food will be distributed first-come, first-served, and begins at  9:00 a.m. Additionally, volunteers will be on-site to help individuals complete the 2020 census and register to  vote. Neither is required to receive the food. Adults need to present a valid ID to receive food.  During this time of uncertainty and crisis, Feeding the Gulf Coast remains dedicated to serving the community.  Working with community partners, the food bank will continue to be an organization of hope and support for families facing hunger.
