Because of poor weather conditions during the time of the Nov. 10 distribution, Fare for All will have a second November distribution in St. Joseph so more people can purchase the Thanksgiving holiday pack.
Organizer Amanda Roles said they had so many people call Fare for All and say they were unable to make it due to the weather that they decided to offer a bonus distribution to make sure everyone has a chance to get the packs they would like before Thanksgiving.
A major snow storm Nov. 10 caused very poor road conditions and resulted in many cancellations. Because of the long distances many Fare for All customers travel, a second distribution in St. Joseph is planned for 4-6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 24 at Resurrection Lutheran Church located at 610 CR 2.
The November holiday pack, which includes an 8- to 12-pound turkey, boneless-skinless chicken breasts, a pork roast, a pork-sausage roll, green beans and a 9-inch pie, sells for the price of $30. This pack replaces the mega meat pack and is intended to feed a family of eight a Thanksgiving meal.
Produce and regular meat packs will also be available.
Customers are also asked to bring their own bags and to bring small money bills for change.
