TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Spending money on food items for you and your family can put a huge dent in your wallet.

That's why Farm Share and Christian Heritage church teamed up to give away more than 16,000 pounds of food, collected by postal carriers.

"I just say thank you, thank you so much for everything," said Tallahassee resident Eddrie Moore.

Moore couldn't be more thankful now that she and many other members of the community were saved from a trip to the grocery store.

People were able to get black beans, cereal, and other donated goods collected from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

"It's a great thing. What better way to give back than to make sure individuals have substances and continue on within they're daily needs," said Tallahassee resident Ariel McPerson.

Within just a few short hours over four hundred members of the community were able to walk away with vegetables and other food items.

Event organizers say this is all bout giving back to the community.

"I want them to know that God cares about them. I want them know that there's people that do care the men in our program especially care," said Michael Mahan of Christian Heritage Church.

According to Christian Heritage Church Members, the organization only served about half the food collected from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

The church plans to find ways to give out the rest, in the coming months.
