HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ -- The Hamilton Area YMCA and the Mercer Street Friends are partnering up to provide necessary food to area families through March. The drive-up food distribution program will help area families struggling with food insecurity.
The food, which is being donated by Mercer Street Friends through support in the community, is available first come, first served while supplies last each day of the program.
The program is beginning on Wednesday, January 20 between 10:00 am and noon and again between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm at the YMCA's JFK Branch located at 1315 Whitehorse-Mercerville Road in Hamilton. Subsequent drive-up food distribution events will be held every other week on February 3 and 17; March 3, 17, and 31.
Attendees should enter the YMCA parking lot and turn left then drive left to the end. They must remain in the vehicle, wear a mask, and open the car's truck where YMCA staff will load food into it.
