Girl Scouts in DeKalb County, Georgia are partnering with local churches and faith leaders to distribute food to those in need.
Several churches in the area are participating in the food drive, which includes giving out boxes of food and even Girl Scout cookies.
The food distribution started at 9 am at some of the churches, while others started at 10 am, and will continue until supplies run out.
However, there is already a long line of cars at the distribution sites, with some people driving from as far as 50 miles away to receive a box of food.
Despite the high demand, organizers are only able to give out 400 boxes of food, which will serve around 1,700 people.
The food distribution is a response to the community’s need, which has grown since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
Georgia-grown fruits and vegetables, meat, and a box of Girl Scout cookies are being provided to anyone in line.
