Foodbank to hold mass food distribution at Wright State Nutter Center June 10

The Foodbank will return to the Wright State University Nutter Center for a mass food distribution on Wednesday, June 10, from noon to 2 p.m.

A wide variety of food, including fresh produce, will be available.

Vehicles should enter the Nutter Center grounds from Col. Glenn Hwy. and North Fairfield Road. Food will be distributed in Lot 8 behind the Nutter Center.

The Foodbank asks that families not start lining up before 10 a.m. There is a limit of two households per vehicle, and carpooling is encouraged for people who are in regular contact.

Vehicles should have an empty trunk or backseat so food can be loaded safely and easily. Foodbank staff will wear masks and gloves and will use a low-touch distribution method.

Any cars in line on Raider Road by 2 p.m. will be served. Anyone who is unable to get to the distribution by 2 p.m. is welcome to visit The Foodbank drive-thru at 56 Armor Place in Dayton on Thursday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to noon.

For the last six years, Wright State has partnered with The Foodbank to host a mass distribution at the Nutter Center. During a food distribution event at the Nutter Center in April, the Foodbank served 1,381 households, the organization’s largest food distribution in its history.

Wright State employees regularly volunteer at The Foodbank, including during We Serve U Day, a university-sponsored program that encourages staff and faculty to volunteer in the community.

The Foodbank’s drive-thru will be open to distribute food on June 8 to June 11 from 10 a.m. to noon at 56 Armor Place in Dayton.
