Commodities To Be Distributed Dec. 11

Upper East Tennessee Human Development Agency (UETHDA) Executive Director Tim Jaynes announced Tuesday that the UETHDA will begin a commodity distribution Dec. I I at the East View Parks & Recreation Center at 456 E. Bernard Ave. in Greeneville.

Those with questions may call the Greeneville Neighborhood Service Center at 639-3681 or contact the staff at 424 E. Bernard Avenue, Suite 3, prior to Dec. 11.

Items will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to income-eligible households until all commodities are gone.

All recipients must be residents of Tennessee. This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.

Each recipient must now have a new "Ivory" commodity ID card in order to pick up commodities. An ID card is obtained by completing an application at the Neighborhood Service Center.

Recipients are encouraged to complete the application prior to the distribution; this will be helpful in reducing wait time, a news release stated.

Staff will be available during the distribution to help recipients obtain ID cards if they have not already done so.

If someone is picking up commodities for another recipient, the person picking up the commodities must have the recipient's ID card with his/her name on the card authorizing the representative to pick up the food. Pickups are limited to five orders.

Distribution will begin at 9 a.m. and will end at 3 p.m. or earlier, or when food is no longer available. Food will be placed in boxes or bags and it will be ready to pick up.

Volunteers may be available to help elderly and disabled persons carry their commodities.

Misrepresentation of need, or sale or exchange of USDA commodities, is prohibited and could result in a fine, imprisonment or both

USDA's Emergency Food Assistance Program is available to all eligible recipients regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.
