Does anyone know how centres and organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr?

As in, my Marja says that at least 3.5kg worth should be given per poor person.

ALL centres that we have here in the UK follow Maraja who state that 3kg is enough. 

I have messaged the centre asking them to pay 3.5kg worth on our behalf, but I'm not sure if they will do it. 

My question is:

Does the method in which organisations distribute Zakat al Fitr cover my requirements already? How much do they give each poor person? 

I have a strong feeling that I'm missing something here.

Hope I'm making sense

Thanks in advance, any help will be appreciated.

Wassalam

Btw, I have a question too. 

Since zakat al fitr must reach the poor before prayer (or duhr) time, how do centres which collect it distribute it before its time? I have the feeling they have no choice but to keep it and hand it out later, are the rules respected then ?
