TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Second Harvest of the Big Bend is digging deeper into local communities as part of their COVID-19 response distribution.

Since the start of the pandemic they've collected data from those receiving food in order to identify the areas of greatest need.

Wednesday morning, people lined up at Mount Moriah Church on Tallahasssee's southside to receive one of 300 meal kits.

"This is our first time," said Jacqueline Garner, the event coordinator at Mount Moriah. "We just stepped into it because we wanted to make sure our neighborhood was fed, and make sure the hungry were fed. And we get Second Harvest stuff anyway, but we never got it as a big bulk like this for the servings."

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in our area, Second Harvest has distributed thousands of meals.

There will be another distribution Thursday in Gadsden County at Little Lamb's Temple from 10 a.m until 1 p.m.
