Feed Evansville hosted a picnic at the C.K. Newsome Center on Sunday afternoon.

The picnic was to thank the over 800 people who have volunteered for Feed Evansville since its creation in March of 2020.

The organization was formed at the start of the pandemic and has been giving out food to those in need every day since.

On Sunday, Feed Evansville organizers showed their appreciation by hosting the picnic and giving food, drinks, and good times to volunteers.

"It truly takes a village to come together and make movement and change in your community. Remember, food security is something that is a situation within our town but it's something we can tackle and we can make good on and we can do it together. So let's come out together and feed Evansville," said Lisa Vaughan, Chair of Feed Evansville.

Vaughan told 44News around 100 volunteers were expected at the picnic.

While Feed Evansville was created to provide food relief to those in need during the pandemic, it will soon be folding in to the new Food Security Commission created by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
