A five-week-long partial government shutdown has meant greater food insecurity for people all across the country.
The Faith Temple Food Giveaway posted on their Facebook page on Friday morning that they believe more than 500 people will come to their event. The giveaway is at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds, lasting from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
They also posted on their Facebook page that they’re hoping to see people “affected by the Shutdown.”
You can come here to not only grab food for your family, but also people you know. KELOLAND News is talking to people to find out just how much the giveaway means to them, and that will be the heart of our Night Beat report Friday night on KELOLAND News at Ten.
