All participants must apply in person. The distribution process will take about 20 minutes. It will consist of filling out an application, sitting in a small group nutritional talk, and signing for and receiving the coupons. There are 100 coupon packets to distribute and they will be done on a first come, first serve basis to eligible applicants. This will be the only distribution site and date. If there are any coupons left after July 1, those interested may call the Center to find out how to obtain them.
