Food, Water and Ice Points of Distribution
Immediately following a disaster, Points of Distribution, or PODs, were set up by the county to provide food, water and ice to individuals. Supplies are offered each day from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. as they last. Sites will be restocked continuously. In Bay County, the following sites are currently open:
As of Monday, October 29, all POD sites are closed. POD sites will no longer be distributing bulk food, water and ice, but they will continue to serve hot meals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily for a week before closing completely.
The PODs have continued to see diminishing use within the community, and they are being closed to support local economic recovery as businesses surrounding the POD sites reopen.
