Local Food Giveaway Brings Warmth During These Cold Temperatures

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- During this extended cold weather season, many families around the Topeka area are finding themselves short on funds and food.

To alleviate some of that pressure, Town and Country Christian Church held its monthly food distribution at the Kansas Neurological Institute, south of 21st and Randolph.

Volunteers told us, with last months cancellation because of the bad weather, they had more food on hand to give away.

They say sometimes the smallest effort goes a long way for a local family in need.

"One person said that there was one month that he came and all we had left was yogurt. And we gave him a case of yogurt and he said he and his family made that yogurt last for the whole next month because it was all they had for that next month until they could come and get some more food," Deb Bryan, volunteer.

Town and Country Christian Church sponsors the distribution event every first Thursday of the month as part of the Harvesters Mobile Food Network.
