SPANISH FORT, Alabama — The Mass Emergency Food Distribution, scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, April 14, has been moved to Spanish Fort High School.
The U.S. 31 road expansion project has reached the stretch of roadway in front of Prodisee Pantry and will impact Prodisee Pantry’s Mass Emergency Food Distributions. As a safety measure, Prodisee Pantry is working hand in hand with the Baldwin County Public Schools, local law enforcement, and others to CONTINUE our critical operations during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
All Baldwin County families seeking food assistance must now go to Spanish Fort High School.
Superintendent Eddie Tyler has agreed to allow Prodisee Pantry to use Spanish Fort High School as a staging area for cars in line for food assistance.
“Safety is our number one concern for the community and for our volunteers,” said Prodisee Pantry Executive Director Deann Servos.
Prodisee Pantry has anticipated that a minimum of 800 cars will be funneled through both the Spanish Fort High School parking lot and Prodisee Pantry’s parking lot during its next essential distribution on Tuesday, April 14 from 9 am to noon.
“Prodisee Pantry’s Mass Emergency Food Distributions are for Baldwin County residents only,” Servos said. “We ask families seeking food provide a photo id, proof they live in Baldwin County and patience with the distribution process.”
Prodisee Pantry wants to thank its long-term partners, Servos said, including Baldwin County Public Schools for their willingness to help, and to the Spanish Fort Police Department, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Department and Baldwin County Emergency Management for their support.
“Together we will continue to provide food and hope to our neighbors in need,” Servos said, “particularly during this difficult and uncertain time caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
