TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- 100 people came home with bags full of fresh groceries Saturday, all for free, thanks to Project Tallahassee.

It's part of the Downtown Community Church's Community Outreach Program to help neighbors in need.

They recently partnered with Second Harvest of the Big Bend to distribute fresh meat, produce and non-perishable food items to families on the south side of town.

Second Harvest will now drop-off a truck full of food every month for Project Tallahassee to organize and hand out. Families were all smiles as they picked out needed groceries.

"It's really it's a blessing. I love fresh produce. Ya'll are doing a great thing and I'm happy that you all are sharing this and I was able to come out and get some things. Thank you," said Teretha Hill.

Trader Joes donates bags and Project Tallahassee packs them with necessities.

The group is always looking for volunteers to help organize and distribute food.
