The Landon's Hope Mobile Food Pantry was busy handing out meals during a drive-thru event in White Plains, Kentucky, earlier on Friday.

For some in White Plains, without the Landon's Hope Mobile Food Pantry, they wouldn't know where their next meal would be coming from.

"The lord always provides, but thank god for people like this," said one White Plains woman at the event on Friday.

While Landon's Hope usually relies on grant money to help purchase enough meals, the organization on Friday received a helping hand from the Tri-State Food Bank.

Although Landon's Hope has been operating the mobile food pantry since before the COVID-19 pandemic, the global health crisis has created the need for the organization's assistance now more than ever.

"We have had a bunch of layoffs, and we have had a bunch of people that did not get their unemployment on time or any supplementary," said Wanda Rollins, the Executive Director for Landon's Hope in White Plains. "This is helping them feed their families and the elderly also and they're very thankful for it."

Landon's Hope will be hosting more mobile food pantry stops in September.
