United Food Operation will begin its next set of food distributions to area food pantries in January 2019. The exact dates of the 2019 program will be determined at the group’s annual organizational meeting on Friday, December 21.
United Food Operation (UFO) will again support a group of 12 food pantries in Kanawha and Putnam counties. UFO provides food to the pantries at no charge.
As an all volunteer organization, working from donated warehouse space with donated equipment, UFO has almost no overhead. This allows all the money people donate to go directly to the purchase of food. UFO has been conducting its Winter Food Distribution since 1982.
