Volunteers at Trinity United Methodist Church did their part to help feed the hungry on Wednesday.

After receiving a supply of USDA food boxes from the Tri-State Food Bank, the church hosted a food distribution event in downtown Evansville Wednesday.

Pastor Todd Gile says the food distribution event was the perfect way for the church to give back to the community.

"We've been looking to be a missional church downtown - something that is giving back to the community," explained Pastor Gile. "When we were called by Tri-State Food, we thought that was a great way to pair up a need in the community and something that we can participate in downtown."

Also present at Wednesday's food distribution was individuals with Vincennes University, which uses Trinity United Methodist Church as a satellite location for adult education courses.

Pastor Gile tells us the church is planning another food giveaway event in April.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
