Food Distribution Date for March 2022 announced by Upper East Tenn. HDA

(SNEEDVILLE, TN) The Upper East Tennessee Human Development Agency will begin a Commodity Distribution
March 12, 2022 at Hancock High School at 2700 Main Street in Sneedville. Items will be distributed through
a drive-thru option on a first come, first served basis, to income eligible households until all commodities
are gone. This will provide for the safety of recipients as well as the volunteers and staff. Recipients must
be residents of Tennessee. This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of
Agriculture.
Commodity cards will no longer be needed, but we strongly encourage each recipient to complete an
application the week prior to the date of your distribution. This will reduce your wait time during the
distribution. However, staff will be available on site during the Distribution if you wish to complete an
application the day of the event. If someone is picking up your commodities they must be authorized on your
application; limits to pickup are ten (10) orders.
The distribution will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will end at 12:00 p.m. or earlier if food is no longer available.
Misrepresentation of need, or sale or exchange of USDA commodities is prohibited and could result in a
fine, imprisonment, or both. USDA’s Emergency Food Assistance Program is available to all eligible recipients
regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability.
USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
