Feed Evansville is hopeful to secure a new supply of food heading into 2021 in order to continue providing assistance to area residents in need.

When it comes to food assistance, Feed Evansville says their program is waiting on Washington.

The group has been handing out thousands of food boxes on a weekly basis through the USDA's Farmers to Families Food Box program - but right now, that program is pending under the recently passed relief bill, and waiting on coordination between farmers and distributors before Feed Evansville can secure a new supply.

In the meantime, co-chair Lisa Vaughan says they are working to put together at least one giveaway next month.

"We have raised enough money locally from private donors to provide at least a week or two of boxes to the thousand cars that come through the Hartke Pool line every Monday," said Vaughan.

A date for that handout has not been set at this time.

Feed Evansville is also partnering with 25 local businesses through its “Shop Local, Give Local” campaign, where perishable items will be collected through donations from willing members of the community who stop in to shop at their favorite local store.

The "Shop Local, Give Local," campaign will run from Jan. 1 through Jan. 11 at the following participating Tri-State businesses:

  • The Refinery of Newburgh
  • Flutter Newburgh
  • Jennings Street Public House
  • Legacy Elite
  • Tillman Eyecare
  • Sweet Emotions
  • Lamasco Bar and Grill
  • Penny Lane
  • Leroys Tavern
  • Harmony Eyecare
  • Cambridge Golf Course
  • Myriad Brewing Company
  • Diamond Galleria
  • River City Coffee + Goods
  • Kemper CPA
  • Opie and Eleanor's
  • Kasey Gray-State Farm Insurance Agent
  • Caring Friends Daycare
  • PLE fashion
  • Walther's Golf & Fun

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
