Feed Evansville hosted the event, which one of several being held this week for residents to get food.

Feed Evansville was created to help fight food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

they just want to offer help to the community in need.

“I don’t feel like its a nice thing we’re doing, I don’t feel like it’s something we’re doing to help people. I feel like it’s our duty and I feel like we’re walking next to people and were just being in community with people. We’re not really helping people, we’re being a resource for needs,” Lisa Vaughn, Feed Evansville co-chair, said.
