Over 500 Free Dairy Boxes Distributed in Delaware County

The free dairy box distribution held in Manchester on Wednesday night was over before it really even started.

First Lutheran Church pastor Tony Ede says they teamed up with the Foundation for the Future of Delaware County COVID-19 Relief Fund and Delaware County Pay It Forward for the event – the second one this summer.

Lisa Guetzko with the Delaware County COVID-19 Relief Fund says each box contained milk and other dairy products made possible through a grant awarded to Prairie Farms.

And the response to Wednesday’s free dairy box distribution was huge.

With vehicles lined up for blocks waiting to pick up a box at the church, organizers decided to start handing out the boxes a half hour early at 4:30 pm. All of the boxes – over 500 of them – were gone by 5 pm.
