YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A food giveaway was held Friday at New Vision New Day Ministry in Youngstown.
Organizers received 200 USDA boxes of food from a sister church in Cleveland and decided to host a drive-thru giveaway.
Food was distributed between 4 and 6 p.m.
The church has been helping people struggling throughout the pandemic, which is why they jumped on the opportunity to bring this food back to our community.
“It’s a lot of families in need right now. A lot of homeless people. It’s really needed right now,” said Roslyn Sewell, organizer.
Fifteen boxes were also given specifically to a nursing home in Struthers.
Sewell said they plan to have more giveaways for the upcoming holiday season.
