EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Feed Evansville was out Wednesday handing out food boxes in preparation for Thanksgiving.

Recipients lined up near Hartke Pool and the line wrapped around Swonder Ice Arena, backing up all the way to the Lloyd Expressway.

Some people were waiting for hours to get a box full of foods like turkey, stuffing, fruits and vegetables. Events like these help keep people fed during the holiday season.

“It’s gonna be pretty helpful to me,” Recipient Melvin Miller said. “I get there and try to throw this Thanksgiving meal together, and sit back and enjoy Thanksgiving. These people doing a good thing. They are blessings and they will be blessed.”

Part of the food donation came from the Evansville Rescue Mission, which had extra after its Gobbler Gathering event on Tuesday.

Another part of the food donation came from the Tri-State Food Bank, which held an event as well earlier in the week.
