Pro Action of Steuben and Yates, Inc. is partnering with Foodlink and Yates County to provide a community-wide grocery distribution Thursday, July 23 from 2–4 p.m. at the Finger Lakes Produce Auction, 3691 Route 14A south of Penn Yan, providing three boxes of food per family. Each box is approximately 25 pounds and contains mixed dairy, cooked meat, and produce.

Requirements for clients:

• Pre-registration is required. Register online or call Yates Office for the Aging

at: 315-536-5515 or Yates DSS at: 315-536-5183 and follow prompt to receptionist.

Note: Registration is on a first come, first served basis.

• This will be a drive-through model; clients must stay in their car and put a piece of paper with first name and last name in window facing out for staff to see at check-in.

• Please have your car’s trunk cleaned out so the box of emergency food can be put into it. Once your trunk is closed and tapped, you may drive away. This will be a no-touch distribution and proper social distancing must be maintained at all time.

• No walk-ups; only pre-registered households in cars will be served
