Feed Evansville continues to help Tri-State families during these tough times.

The organization hosted a community food share Sunday afternoon.

It's the first time they've been able to hand out boxes from the USDA farm to families program, with the last few giveaways being collected from community donations.

Officials say they were able to serve 1,115 families Sunday.

"We have about 85 pantries there are in the Evansville Vanderburgh County area, but access to those pantries and to grocery stores and things like seems to be an issue that keeps rising up," says Lisa Vaughan, organizer. "So the food commission is going to help with those types of things as well. Kind of finding out where are the gaps, how can we pivot to fill the gap."

Feed Evansville is now a part of the Evansville Food Security Commission which officially formed last Monday.

There will be another community food share at Hartke Pool this Wednesday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
