As part of the City of Bowie’s CDBG-CV-funded relief programs, the City will be distributing emergency food aid to city residents at the Kenhill Center on Saturdays in August. Non-perishable groceries will be distributed at four drive-through events, taking place on the following dates:
- Saturday, August 7, 2021
- Saturday, August 14, 2021
- Saturday, August 21, 2021
- Saturday, August 28, 2021
All distribution events will take place at the Kenhill Center, Bowie.
Food will be distributed from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. (or until all food is gone.) All food will be non-perishable and include ingredients for a selection of meals. Volunteers, wearing masks and gloves, will load food into vehicles and staff will gather information from residents in their cars. Residents will not exit their vehicles.
Only City of Bowie residents are eligible for this program. Residents will be required to provide ID or a piece of mail with a Bowie address on it to qualify for assistance. Please check to make sure your address is within City of Bowie limits at https://gis-cityofbowie.hub.arcgis.com/app/7df1a42cf2264319b718fefba3dfac8a
