TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — While businesses are starting to open back up, there is still a need for food for many families in the Tallahassee community.

The Urban League, along with Second Harvest of the Big Bend, is helping hundreds of families in Frenchtown with a much needed food distribution.

The Second Harvest-Urban League distribution wasn't just a drive-thru but was also available for those walking up.

The Urban League says they know the need for food is of the utmost importance, especially right now.

"We have a connection with our citizens here," said Curtis Taylor, the president & CEO of Tallahassee Urban League. "They will come to us when they might not go to other places."

"These are probably some of the most under-served and needy families," said Beverly Williams, one of the volunteers. "And because of lot of times they are not willing to come out and ask for help, their needs go unmet."

The Urban League will continue food distributions for as long as they can.
