For vehicles representing multiple households, a keycard will need to be scanned for each household. Each individual household you pick up for must register separately and provide you with their keycard.
Each vehicle can pick up for a maximum of four (4) households.
Please have your trunk or tailgate cleared so that food may be placed in safely and efficiently. Food will be place directly into the trunk of the vehicle. Driver’s windows must be down and with all occupants wearing face coverings. If you are unable to open your trunk or if it is not cleared, you will be asked to load your food independently.
To minimize traffic and waiting times, please do not arrive more than 30 minutes before the distribution start time. If arriving prior to start time, staff are not responsible for maintaining line spots. In Warminster Community Park, park attendees have the right of way. Please do not block any pedestrian or bike walkways.
Fresh Connect and the distribution organizers reserve the right to refuse service to individuals who do not comply with the rules and regulations established for each drive-thru food distribution.
