As the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect many members of the community, Tioga Downs Casino Resort will put food on the table for local families in need this week with a chicken BBQ drive-through giveaway on Tuesday, June 16. A total of 500 meals with sides from Oliver’s Pub & Grill in Towanda, Pa. will be given to the first people who arrive from 2 p.m. until supplies run out on a first-come, first-served basis.
The free chicken BBQ meal from Oliver’s Pub & Grill includes sides of baked beans, coleslaw and fresh dinner rolls. In order to fairly accommodate as many families as possible, organizers of the giveaway are asking that guests pick up only enough food for their family.
Guests are encouraged to line up with their vehicles in a drive-through formation to pick up the meals and maintain social distancing. Oliver’s Pub & Grill is located at 1548 Golden Mile Rd. in Towanda, Pa.
Tioga Downs, which opened in 2006, and expanded to Tioga Downs Casino Resort in December 2016, offers live harness racing, casino gaming, sports betting, dining, golf, indoor and outdoor live entertainment, and more.
