The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center will be the site of a free food giveaway event on Thursday, February 25, which will continue as long as supplies last.

The City of Duluth Posted the official announcement on their Facebook page:

This Thursday, 30-pound boxes of food will be given away for free at the DECC - Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center for as long as supplies last. The load of food is provided by the Duluth Building and Construction Trades Council, North East Area Labor Council, and UFCW Local 1189.
The giveaway begins at 11:30 a.m. This is a drive-thru pickup. Please plan accordingly.
Huge thanks to the unions for bringing this to Duluth for those who need it. We are #DuluthProud of you!

If you're in need of assistance, or know of an area family who is, please share this this information. This is another terrific effort by all involved to help the community through what continues to be troubled times for many Northland families.

While this is a drive-thru event, it would be best to have a mask handy to protect those helping to facilitate the giveaway.  Also, please have your vehicle ready to efficiently transport a 30-pound box of food.

Since this food giveaway is only available while supplies last, one would expect people to be lined up at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center Thursday morning well ahead of the 11:30 a.m. start time.
