TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Hundreds of families in need will have food on the table thanks to Second Harvest.

Vehicles lined up and packed the Greater Love Church of God in Christ parking lot in Tallahassee for the food distribution drive.

Members of the National Guard along with volunteers placed 350 boxes filled with fresh produce, bread, and meat into vehicles.

For people like Beverly Swicord, this food drive is more than just helping out.

“This giveaway is for every family that is willing to come out and get a box," said Swicord, a manager at Greater Love Church of God in Christ. "So that we can ease the worries about food and nourishment for every family in the area.”

Organizers with the church say they hold about four food distribution drives every month.
