BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — The Mountaineer Food Bank prepares to hold its first food give away of the new year.
Volunteers with the food bank said they felt their giveaways were needed in 2020 more than ever.
They said people come from all over Raleigh County and surrounding communities in need of assistance.
The first giveaway of the year takes place Jan. 27. Volunteers anticipate just as many people are in need this year.
“This parking lot will be crammed full of cars, probably up to as many as 350, tomorrow is also our first food giveaway of 2021 and we are excited to continue that,” said Ron Hedrick, a volunteer with Mountaineer Food Bank.
The giveaway begins at 11 in the morning at Linda K. Epling Stadium.
