The White County Commodity Distribution, sponsored by the Community Action Program for Central Arkansas, will be held April 24 from 8:15-11:30 a.m. at the A.J. Baker National Guard Armory, 3105 S. Main St. in Searcy.

Items to be distributed include pinto beans, lentils, dark red kidney beans, green beans, blueberries, peaches, shredded cheese, orange juice, orange juice singles, pistachio nuts, peanut butter, raisins and vegetable soup.

Each household will receive one to three of each item as supplies last. Commodities will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Requirements include a declaration of household income and photo identification. Those who are picking up commodities for someone must have a signed and dated statement from that person giving permission to pick up their commodities. Commodities may be picked up for only one other person.

The monthly income guidelines are $1,354 for a family of one; $1,832 for a family of two; $2,311 for a family of three; $2,790 for a family of four; $3,269 for a family of five; $3,748 for a family of six; $4,227 for a family of seven; and $4,705 for a family of eight. Each additional family member adds $479.
