Senior Alliance plans free food distribution in Wayne

An emergency food distribution is planned for 10 a.m. until noon May 21 at The Senior Alliance, 5454 Venoy Road in Wayne.

Seniors ages 60 and older who reside in southern and western Wayne County communities are eligible for the food boxes which will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Also eligible are adults living with a disability residing with an individual 60 and older and individuals currently enrolled in the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver Program.

Traffic should  enter the parking lot from Venoy Road and follow the signs to enter the line. Food boxes are limited but participants are asked not to arrive before 9:30 a.m.

Senior Alliance officials said the distribution will follow guidelines in compliance with social distancing. Motorists are asked to follow the guidance of staff, volunteers and police as they direct cars through the distribution area. 

All individuals must remain in their vehicle and after driving into the distribution area, participants should stay in the car pop trunk and follow directional signs. If the car trunk does not open or there is not space, participants will be directed to drive forward to a table to personally load the food box. Volunteers cannot place food into the passenger area of the vehicle. Attendees will be required to provide the name, address, age and authorize a signature by proxy for each individual receiving a food box.
