TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Volunteers organized at Tallahassee Community College on Wednesday morning to make sure their neighbors have groceries this week.

More than 400 boxes of food were handed out in the first hour.

It was hosted in part by Second Harvest of the Big Bend, and city commissioner Curtis Richardson was among the volunteers.

Richardson says he's happy to help out and recognizes a lot of people continue to struggle.

"So many of them are in need and it's all across the community," said Richardson. "We're just glad to be able to be here to partner with Second Harvest and provide the food that our neighbors need in these times."

Second Harvest will also provide children in need a backpack full of food every week of the school year through the Envision No Hunger Campaign.

Envision Credit Union will match dollar-for-dollar up to $30,000 in donations.
