Earlier on Wednesday, a drive-thru food pantry was held at Hemenway Memorial Presbyterian Church in Boonville, Indiana.
Those in the Booville area in need of food were able to pull up and receive it while staying inside their vehicle and following CDC guidelines.
Organizers of the event say the need for food assistance in the area has continued to grow amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
"At the worst part of the full shutdown, we were serving up to 97 families a week," explained Jeff Conn, one of the organizers of the drive-thru event.
Although the need for food in the area has continued to increase, Conn says it's easy to see how big of an impact a helping gesture can have on the community.
"You can see when you really affect someone, they get to the point where they're becoming emotional and you can see that you've really made an impact on their life," said Conn.
For those who would like to help with future food pantries, Hemenway Memorial Presbyterian Church is accepting food donations at the church's location, at 124 E Sycamore St in Boonville, Indiana.
The drive-thru food pantries at Hemenway take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.
The next drive-thru event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 23. For more information, you can check out the church's food pantry event page on Facebook.
