The next distribution will take place Wednesday, August 17th from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm at the Concordia First United Methodist Church, located at 740 W. 11th Street in Concordia.

To be eligible to receive commodities the total household income must be below $1,473 for one person, $1,984 for two, $2,495 for three and $3,007 for four.  For each additional family member add $512.
