The Crawford-Sebastian Community Development Council Community Food Pantry’s USDA Commodities Distribution Program will be rescheduled due to the expected frigid temperatures and inclement weather.

The C-SCDC Community Food Pantry — a member agency of the River Valley Regional Food Bank — announces it will move the distribution, originally scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 16, to Tuesday, Feb. 23. The distribution on Feb. 23 will begin at 7:30 a.m. at 1617 South Zero Street in Fort Smith. The pantry will serve until 10:30 a.m., or while supplies last. The pantry also encourages clients to please not line up in the parking lot before 7 a.m. on distribution days.

The C-SCDC distributes commodities through the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which works to improve the health of low-income pregnant women, new mothers, families, infants, children, and the elderly by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods.
