Brunswick will be hosting a second Farmers to Families food drop on Thursday. The food drop will begin at 3 p.m., with the line up getting underway at 2:30 p.m. 

A truck with 2,400 boxes of food will be given away for free, regardless of income or other restrictions. People who stop by the food distribution don’t also have to be residents of New York Mills and can pick up food for neighbors, friends and family members.

The food will be given away on a first come first serve basis and food will be loaded into each person’s vehicle as they drive through the food distribution line. Similar free food distributions have taken place across the region and includes everything from protein to dairy and other food essentials like potatoes.

The line up will occur on W Centennial 84 Drive. Those who attend are asked to park on the south shoulder at the corner of W Centennial 84 Dr. and N Boardman Ave. 

The event will be hosted by Brunswick of New York Mills.
