TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Hundreds of families on Tallahassee's Southside walked away with boxes of food Tuesday thanks to Second Harvest of the Big Bend and Mount Moriah Church of God in Unity.

The emergency food boxes come with enough supplies to make about three days worth of meals, and there were enough for 500 families.

The church also has an emergency food pantry. Since the coronavirus started the demand for that pantry has grown.

"Prior to COVID, we were doing maybe two or three food giveaways a day," said Velma Stevens, the church secretary. "Now we're doing six, seven."

From now until next Friday, you can donate to the Envision No Hunger Campaign and Envision Credit Union will match dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000.

The program gives kids a backpack filled with food every weekend throughout the school year.
