Food banks all across NY have been doing milk, produce, and meat giveaways to those in need. Recently, Tully JSHS was a site for one of these giveaways, seeing approximately 600 cars. Cars began lining up at 11:00 a.m. even though the event didn't start until 3:00 p.m. By 4:14 p.m., only milk was left. Each car was given two gallons of milk, a 22-lb box of produce that consisted of potatoes, onions, apples, oranges, carrots, brocolli, and salad, among other items, and a 10-lb box of meat, which was diced chicken. Other sites in the immediate area were set up in Lafayette and Otisco. The giveaway was made available by the Food Bank of CNY. Tully Rotary and Tully Central School District administrators and staff volunteered to set up, distribute, and guide the traffic flow through the parking lot. Many thanks to those who volunteered and donated to make this event successful in helping to feed the community of Tully!
