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

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
