With the donation of nearly 160,000 pounds of chicken from OK Foods, the River Valley Regional Food Bank is organizing the Great Chicken Giveaway food distribution to families in need today.

Each vehicle will be provided with a 40-pound box of frozen chicken products starting at 7 a.m. at Kay Rodgers Park, 4400 Midland Blvd., Fort Smith.

Traffic will be directed in a one-way-in-one-way-out method. Residents should only enter the park through the Midland Boulevard entrance and exit on to North 50th, according to a news release.

In order to maintain the health and safety of the public, the Fort Smith Police Department will direct drivers to the appropriate place, the release adds. Multiple lines will be created to improve traffic flow. Drivers and passengers will be asked to stay inside their vehicles with windows up.
