TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Answering the call for a struggling community as the COVID-19 crisis continues to put a strain on so many, Second Harvest of the Big Bend is teaming with volunteers and church members at Tallahassee Community College to distribute food.

It's part of an ongoing effort throughout the Big Bend area to make sure no one goes hungry.

"I think churches and religious groups all over the city are very interested in helping their neighbors," said Brant Copeland, the pastor at First Presbyterian Church of Tallahassee. "This is a really tough time for lots of people and one of the priorities, of course, is putting food on the table so we're very happy to be part of that effort."

"We just came to get some food to help me and my family out," said A.J. Williams, a Tallahassee resident. "We're senior citizens, so every little bit helps, since we have to spend so much on our medical expenses."

And if you're in Gadsden County and in need of food, Second Harvest will host a distribution in Gadsden County on Thursday at the grocery store at 35 Jefferson Street.

The distribution will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., or whenever the food runs out.
