Bay County POD changes coming soon

Bay County POD Locations to Begin Closing Friday

Three Bay County Points of Distribution, or PODs, will be closed as of Friday, Oct. 26, with the remaining two sites closing Monday, Oct. 29. 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.The POD closure schedule is as follows:

  • Closing Friday, Oct. 26 (serving hot meals only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Friday, Nov. 2):
