The last day of Feed Evansville's weekly food distribution events at Hartke Pool is scheduled for June 30, but until then, organizers say the nonprofit is in desperate need of volunteers.

Feed Evansville Chair Lisa Vaughn says the volunteer pool has been declining. She believes it's likely due to many people going back to work and filling their schedules as the area starts to reopen.

"We are noticing the volunteer pool is declining," Vaughn said. "That's more likely to do that everybody is going back to work, things are opening back up, there's other things for people to do basically."

Be that as it may, Vaughn says Feed Evansville still aims to finish out strong through its last food distribution on June 30. "We are still feeding up to 2,000 to 3,000 families a week and we need volunteers to be able to put those boxes in everybody's cars," she said.

If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering, you can start the process by reaching out to the Feed Evansville Facebook page.
