People who came out to the giveaway — were loaded up with about 46 lbs of food — as they drove thru.

“We have fruit, vegetables, protein with a meat. And then meat and dairy on the milk side. So, it’s a good balanced array of food that they can go back and really feed the families with, and stretch it out a ways,” said Harrison.
