Two free monthly food distributions are held each month at Austin and Scottsburg church properties.

The food distribution that will be held at the fellowship hall of the First Baptist Church of Austin is planned for Friday, August 12. It is located on the northeast corner of West Cherry and South Second Streets.

On Friday, August 26, a free distribution of food will take place at The Rock, the Scottsburg First Christian Church shelter house, which is located south of Scottsburg High School on the west side of U.S. Highway 31.

Both distributions are offered through the efforts of the Nelson Spaulding Community Clearinghouse and Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana Inc.

Doors at both locations will open at 8 a.m. on those designated Fridays. Starting at that time, persons wishing to receive food can sign in and get a number. That number will be called when that person's turn in the distribution line is available. Hours for both distributions will be from 10 a.m. to 12 noon or until supplies are exhausted.

No smoking is allowed in or outside the buildings. Those needing to smoke must do so in their vehicles. People smoking on the grounds in Austin or Scottsburg will be asked to leave.

Questions about the distributions should be directed to the Clearinghouse by calling 812-752-0123.
