Commodity Distribution details announced for Sneedville event May 8

(SNEEDVILLE, TN) The Upper East Tennessee Human Development Agency will begin a Commodity Distribution
May 8, 2021 at Hancock High School at 2700 Main Street in Sneedville. Items will be distributed through
a drive-thru option on a first come, first served basis, to income eligible households until all commodities
are gone.

This will provide for the safety of recipients as well as the volunteers and staff. Recipients must
be residents of Tennessee. This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department
of Agriculture.

Each recipient must have an Orange colored commodity ID card in order to pick up their commodities.
An ID card is obtained by completing an application at the Neighborhood Service Center. We strongly
encourage each recipient to complete the application the week prior to the date of your distribution, this
will reduce your wait time during the distribution. However, staff will be available on site during the

Distribution to assist in acquiring a commodity card. If someone is picking up your commodities, they must
have your ID card and be authorized on your application; limits to pickup are ten (10) orders.

The distribution will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will end at 12:00 p.m. or earlier if food is no longer available.
Misrepresentation of need, or sale or exchange of USDA commodities is prohibited and could result in a
fine, imprisonment, or both. USDA’s Emergency Food Assistance Program is available to all eligible recipients
regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex, or disability.
USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
