"Just give everybody the love and support they need during this time of gov shutdown and the pandemic," says Lisa Vaughn, Feed Evansville chair.

The lines of people waiting to feed their families at Hartke Pool shows just how real this pandemic is hurting those financially.

"We're expecting to feed one thousand families today," Vaughn says.

Feed Evansville has been a blessing to some who may not know where their next meal will come from.

As many families in the Tri-State are still unemployed and more children are at home learning virtually, the non-profit organization has noticed an increased number of people reaching out.

Although Feed Evansville has plenty of food to give to those in need, they are struggling to keep up with the demand.

"Feed Evansville needs volunteers, we're going to have a line consistently with people," says Vaughn.

After learning they will get USDA Food boxes next week, it is crucial to have all hands on deck.

"It's fun to do cause you're doing real good work, right on the ground, boots on the ground," said volunteer Steve Hammer.
