BlackRock Center’s Upcounty Consolidation Hub and Nourish Now – a nonprofit food bank – is holding a drive-thru food distribution Tuesday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m. at Germantown Elementary School, 19110 Liberty Mill Road.
People attending the food distribution are asked to remain in their cars while they are given the groceries. Food will be distributed while supplies last. People without a car are also welcomed and are asked to contact hubeblackrockcenter.org.
