It is a drive-thru event and the Food Bank is asking customers not to arrive before noon for food preparation and safety purposes, the release said.

“We are grateful to be able to provide these additional capabilities to support families in need,” said Michelle Riley, CEO of The Foodbank. “The town of Trotwood is a great asset to the Greater Dayton area, full of economic growth and progress. It is also a community with a high level of food insecurity due to historic divestments.”

Guests will receive complimentary fresh produce, protein, grains and other products to alleviate food insecurity in the Trotwood area, the release said.

CareSource is sponsoring the event and will volunteer their time to hand out the food.

Guests are also asked to have enough space in the trunk or back seat for placing food.
