5,000 USDA food boxes to be given away in Savannah

Our Daily Bread Ministry and Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Savannah are partnering with House of Hope to distribute 5,000 food boxes provided by USDA to the community to assist families that may have experienced food shortages related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Food includes fresh food and several kinds of meats.
The give-away is on Saturday, Oct. 17, at Savannah Church of Christ parking lot on Pickwick Street beginning at 8 a.m.
“There is no cost, no paperwork to fill out, no proof of address. Just come pick it up,” said Finley Beckham, director of Our Daily Bread Ministry. “You can pick up for people who may not be able to come because they are seniors. You can get multiple boxes.”
Beckham says there will be four tractor trailer loads of food and volunteers are needed to help unload the food and load it into the trunks of cars and backs of trucks. He said it is a good idea for volunteers to wear a mask. Helpers need to arrive at 7:45 a.m.
“We are hopeful a large give away like this is not just a one time deal,” said Beckham.
