City Councilman Brian O’Neill announced the addition of three locations in the 10th Councilmanic District to the list of city food distribution sites.

Families can now pick up free food for their household at the following locations:

• Pelbano Recreation Center, 8101 Bustleton Ave.

• Mitzvah Food Program (KleinLife), 10100 Jamison Ave.

• Palmer Recreation Center, 3035 Comly Road

Sites are open Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to noon.
