The Tallahassee non-profit "Food not Bombs" is helping keep people fed through coronavirus concerns.

They held their second meal distribution during the pandemic Sunday at Carter Howell Strong Park.

They offered both hot meals and grab bags filled with fresh fruits and veggies.

The group says they’ve seen a lot more first-timers stop by since COVID-19.

Now, they're trying to help them while also balancing their resources.

Kyle Rose, Food not Bombs Volunteer says, "What's really kept us going during these time is just knowledge that scarcity is artificial. Scarcity that's been produced by the market that we live in is only expanding in times of this pandemic and the need for food is just expanding. "

The group says they'll welcome new volunteers.

They plan to hold their next distribution on the third Sunday in June.
