Calling those who want to be in the holiday spirit!!! November and December are Holiday Box production months at the Mayerson Distribution Center! During the holiday season, Freestore Foodbank distributes over 17,000 boxes in addition to produce and proteins (turkeys and chickens) to provide meals prior to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
