"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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
