Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the food will be delivered from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Unlike most food distributions, those being served by the mobile pantry will not have to get out of their automobiles. They will drive thru in a pickup line and volunteers will deliver the food directly to their vehicles, placing the food boxes either in the back seat or trunk. Since College Street bridge is currently closed, cars will line up facing south on College Street across from the Smithville Cumberland Presbyterian Church. In the past, automobiles have lined up facing north on College Street.
