United Way of the Mohawk Valley to distribute 1600 meal boxes in Utica

United Way of the Mohawk Valley is gearing up to distribute another 1,600 meal boxes for the final leg of the food distribution series funded by the City of Utica, according to a news release.

Utica residents in need can sign up but should act quick because the meal boxes go fast. The distribution will take place Sunday, April 25, at a new location in East Utica. Full distribution pick-up location and time details will be shared upon registration. The distribution will be a drive-thru or walk-thru style pick-up. 

Families and individuals can access the registration form to reserve their meal box by texting UticaFood to 898-211, visiting www.unitedwaymv.org/uticafood, or calling 844-DIAL-211. 

The meal box kit includes ingredients to prepare at least five meals for a family of five. The kit meal theme is Mediterranean and comes complete with almost everything needed to create the meals including step-by-step recipe cards. 

United Way has partnered with Casa Imports and Karam Produce to bring fresh produce, meat, and other ingredients to families as part of their meal boxes. Each box also will include a full-size bottle of olive oil donated locally by Sovena Inc.
