WEDNESDAY FOOD BOX PICK-UP GUIDELINES
Once you have requested to be placed on our Food Box Distribution List your name will remain on the list as long as you are faithful in picking up. You will not need to contact us each week.
No names will be added after Monday each week.
In the event you are unable to pick up your box you need to call or text 205-352-7691 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday of the week you will miss.
If you do not notify us that you will not be picking up your name will be removed from our list and you will need to have it added again by contacting us using one of the above methods. if you miss more than 2 weeks without notice you will be placed on the extra list and only receive a box if any are left at the end of the pickup day. We will begin the drive through as soon as boxes are packed, usually 10:45 - 11:00.
You need to arrive before 11:30 to be served.
See the traffic flow section below for parking, pick up and exit.

Please remember to look both ways when leaving the parking area. There is consistent and sometimes heavy traffic to and from the Leeds Primary School. Be sure not to block the road to or from the school in case emergency access is needed at the school.
WE NEED HELP FROM ARTISTS OF ALL AGES. We have to reinforce our boxes to carry the weight of the food we place in our food boxes. We currently use pieces of cardboard 18 x 15 inches. We need about 250 of these a month. If you would like to donate 18 x 15 inch “precut bottoms” It would be a blessing to us. You can drop them off at Outreach or you can leave them on the tables in our loading dock.
