GOOD HOPE, Ala. – Daystar Church, with campuses in Good Hope and Hartselle, has been selected as a distribution point for an upcoming Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)-funded Farmers to Families food box distribution event. Daystar Church has secured 12,000 food boxes to be distributed throughout the month of February.  

The church said that it, in partnership with the Farmers to Families Faith-Based Coalition and CityServe, will be joining together with other churches in the southeastern United States to serve as a point of distribution for fresh food boxes to be distributed to local communities. Each food box will contain perishable food products such as pre-cooked chicken or pork, dairy products and assorted fruits and vegetables.

Families will not need to show any proof of need or identification. The boxes will be given to individuals and organizations on a first come, first served basis while supplies last. Boxes will be available on delivery days at 9:30 a.m. and must be picked up no later than noon in order to guarantee freshness.

The Farmers to Families Food Box program is part of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP), which was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Using authority provided by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, USDA partnered with national, regional and local distributors, whose workforces were significantly impacted by the closure of restaurants, hotels and other food service businesses, to purchase and distribute agricultural products to Americans in need. It is a $4 billion provision of the Cares Act that was signed into law by Former President Donald Trump.

Food boxes will be distributed at all Daystar campuses. The two closest campuses below:
