July Pop-Up Pantries food distributions set

Allegany County Pop-Up Pantries (PUPs) for free food distributions have been scheduled for July in Scio and Bolivar.

Mandatory online registrations for the Wednesday, July 10, event at the Scio Central School bus loop, off Vandermark Road (County Road 10), starts at 7AM tomorrow, Monday, July 8, at https://tinyurl.com/Pop-Up-Pantries.

A Wednesday, July 24, distribution will occur at the Bolivar Middle-High School at 100 School Street, with registration starting at 7AM Monday, July 22.

Online registrations occur on the Monday prior to the twice-a-month Wednesdays distributions, and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Unlike traditional food distribution programs, PUP events have no income restrictions.

Individuals and families unable to access the PUP registration can visit the ACCORD ACCESS Center at 84 Schuyler Street (State Route 19), Belmont, for food assistance from 9AM to 3PM Mondays through Fridays, closing a half hour at noon for lunch, and at noon on Pop-up Pantry days.

PUP online registration forms are described as operating like sales tickets, allowing up to five food box registrations per driver or pickup person in a single transaction. If the driver or pickup person is also registering for a food box, they must be included in the ticket quantity for the selected pickup time.​
