Fairfax Community Hospital and its management group, First Physicians Capital Group, will be teaming up Friday with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma on a food distribution event.

The Fairfax Community Hospital will have the drive-through distribution of emergency food boxes from 1-3 p.m. Friday, April 24, for residents of Fairfax and Osage County.

The distribution is to take place at the hospital parking lot. Food distribution will be limited to 1 box per household. Boxes will be distributed to 100 households on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The distribution is intended to provide emergency groceries to people who have lost their jobs because of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as medical personnel and first-responders.
