L&F Distributors and Vista Supermarkets will host the BBQ from noon to 4 p.m. on Jan. 23 at the L&F Warehouse, 6969 Market St.
Employees are asked to bring their government worker ID. Food will be given out for dine-in or pick -up on a first come, first serve basis. Children are also welcome at the BBQ.
