Food Distribution

Pvt. Kimberly Winkelman, Specialist Joshua Covincand Pvt. Gabriel Gauna of the Texas Army National Guard help distribute boxes of food during the East Texas Food Bank’s drive-thru emergency food distribution, on Thursday May 28, 2020, at the Longview Exhibit Building.

The National Guard will host a produce drop Wednesday in Carthage for those in need, Mission Carthage announced Monday.

The produce drop will begin at 9 a.m. in the Carthage Ballpark parking lot.

Jennifer Randall, executive director at Mission Carthage, said the plan was for attendees to line up in their cars as usual, from which they will be directed to the “drive-thru” station where National Guard members will put produce in their car.

“No one will be allowed to exit their vehicle to smoke, talk with others, go to bathroom etc.,” Randall said. “This is all brand new to us, and we hope it goes as smoothly as we think it will.”
