Two hundred fifteen families received a hand up in groceries on Saturday.
The Golden Harvest Food Bank/ Manna Truck Program and Queensborough National Bank & Trust Company held a food give-away at the Thomson Depot.
Residents from Thomson, Warrenton and Dearing begin lining up at 7:30 a.m. to receive boxes containing rice, potatoes, soup, corn, peaches, tomatoes, green beans, and other canned items. The food relief was part the USDA TEFAP Commodities food distribution for families and individuals that met the federal poverty income guidelines.
“We are here to give back to the community,” said Juddy Johnson of the Thomson Branch of Queensborough Bank. “The community supports us and we want to give to them,” he said. “With times as hard as they are, there is a definitely a need,” he added.
