The Spring Food Box Distribution Program at Royal Redeemer Lutheran Church will still proceed as planned from 9-11 a.m., Saturday, April 4, for those who have pre-registered.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, it will be necessary for residents to remain in their vehicles throughout pick up. You will need to show your ticket against your car window. DO NOT OPEN your window, and please have your trunk empty. All food boxes will be placed in the trunk rather than inside the vehicle. Remember, DO NOT GET OUT of your car. These new procedures are being done for the health and safety of all involved.
