TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — When thousands of families are struggling to keep food on the table, Second Harvest of the Big Bend is filling some of that gap.
Every week they hold several free food distributions.
Tuesday, they were in Gretna on the corner of Broad Avenue and Main Street where cars were lined up as far as you could see.
Over 150 families had their trunks filled with chicken, turkey, bread, and fresh produce.
"This time with COVID going on, there are so many people out of jobs," said Evelyn Riley Goldwire, the mayor pro tem of Gretna. "Some of them have taken lesser pay, so there's a need. So we're here to try and help and give any way we can."
Second Harvest has another food distribution on Wednesday in Tallahassee from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Gibbs Village, 2441 Roberts Avenue.
