VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - Second Harvest will be using a $25,000 donation to feed 500 people in Valdosta on Friday.

This is a part of an effort with Feeding America to host pop up food pantries across the Southeast.

The Southeastern Grocers provided them with produce and canned goods to pass out to those in need.

Eliza McCall with Second Harvest explains who all is eligible to receive food.

She says that for this specific event, no proof of income is required. It's just going to be on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.

If you or anyone you know is in need, they can visit Second Harvest in Valdosta to receive a free bag of groceries, at 10 a.m. Friday.

The staff also asks that people do not show up hours in advance.
