Feed Evansville partners with Evansville Rescue Mission to host community food share event
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - On Wednesday, Feed Evansville and the Evansville Rescue Mission gave away food at Hartke Pool.
They say they didn’t give out turkeys, but people were able to get the rest of their Thanksgiving meal there if needed.
Volunteers handed out bread, eggs, as well as Thanksgiving-related foods excluding the turkey. Feed Evansville Chair Lisa Vaughan says events like this help to reduce food insecurity in the city.
“We live in a wonderful community and we have plenty of food, but we have a lack of access to food,” Vaughan said. “Food insecurity happens in four different ways. Is food available? Do you have access to food? Is there use and utilization? And do you have stability of your food?”
Vaughan says she put a call out to the community on Wednesday morning for volunteers and they answered.
