Frequently Asked Questions
Why is there NO P.O.W.W.O.W. Summer Distribution?
The Borderlands Food Bank is unable to rescue the amount of varieties in the summer especially, in August, compared to the fall and winter. Our produce distribution is very much linked to the seasonal produce schedule.
How do I register for a P.O.W.W.O.W. ID Card?
Visit a P.O.W.W.O.W. distribution location of your choice and register at the registrar’s table. Let the person know you are new and would like to complete a P.O.W.W.O.W. ID card. The ID card may be used at any location of your choice. If you have a smart phone with a camera take a picture of the ID card in case you misplace it. If you are unable to take a picture and you misplaced the ID card at a future date tell the registrar so that he/she may take down your name, do not re-register.
