Norco Will Distribute BBQ Meals Today at Blue Valley Farm Show Complex

Northampton County, Development (DCED), in collaboration with Lehigh Valley Food Policy Council, will distribute Operation BBQ relief meal boxes to residents of Northampton County today from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM at the Blue Valley Farm Show complex: 707 American Bangor Road, Bangor, PA 18013.

The meals boxes are first come, first served and will be distributed from a refrigerated truck until supplies run out. Each person will receive a pan of food, which will feed four people. There is no charge and no personal information is needed to participate.

Upcoming additional sites will be scheduled around the County in the next few weeks.

Pennsylvania has done a terrible job providing unemployment benefits to those who have lost jobs as a result of the shutdown. This is a welcome relief.

Never heard of the Food Policy Council. Seems more like a PR stunt for McClure after calling out Gracedale employees on Facebook. I'm surprised he could stay off Facebook that long, I thought his new job was being county info director on social media? How much is this costing tax payers?

You really have a hot nut for him don’t you? This post is about supplying food to those in need and all you can think about is trashing him.

Better than having one for you, cuz if I did, I'd end up homeless...who knows who is being handed this food? People who need it or people who feel entitled? Had enough of him afer his performance at the last County Council meeting. He just couldn't praise himself enough!

It’s pretty obvious you have no empathy for the reality that people are hungry, and choose instead to trash others. But you are right, if you had a hot nut for me, you would end up homeless

Already there and hungry too! Lots of empathy and sympathy for the right people. Info about this "Food Policy Council"?

This is a question you can answer yourself by using google. Nice to know you have empathy "for the right people."

Why wasn't Lamont and his cronies at Gracedale feeding them while workers were out? Talks a good act. Ha Ha We see him for what he is.

Bernie,

That Lehigh Valley Food Policy Council has a really nice website. It seems very user friendly.
