The Feed Evansville Mobile Program has helped provide free produce to many people in the community like Pamela Ande, who says she is beyond grateful for the program.

"They've always brought my food to me and so that was really nice of them," said Ande. "It helps a lot of people that don't have much you know, and they don't get much income so it really helps out."

The program's main goal over the last several months, is to bring the resources right to the door step of low income neighborhoods.

Feed Evansville Chair, Lisa Vaughan, says the goal is to dig deeper, finding ways to continue to help the community.

"We're going to be focusing more on programming, systematic changes, policy, bringing more of the food programming all together in collaboration," said Vaughan. "and so it's hard to do that and hand food out at the same time."

Vaughan says although the visits to neighborhoods will slow down, the program is not going away.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
