How do I get food at a Drive Thru distrubution?

You arrive between 4:45 and 5:50 PM.  We start distrubution at 5 PM.  You stay in your car and line up when cones and volunteers direct you to.  You either fill out a form while in your car, or you may print it at home and bring with you.  Cars remain in line and move up to a "loading" zone directly in front of our building.  Volunteers will load your trunk or truck bed with prepacked boxes and bags of food and other items.
