The Salvation Army and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are teaming up to distribute free food to those in need on Friday in Independence.
They will hand out 850 boxes of food starting at 10 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 705 W. Walnut Ave. in Independence.
Drivers are asked to remain in their vehicles to maintain social distancing and enter the church’s parking lot from the west entrance on Walnut while driving east.
Each recipient will receive a box valued at $100 filled with canned goods, meat, produce and dairy products. The boxes will be handed out first-come, first-served until they are gone.
