Families Line Up Ahead Of Food Giveaway In Sumner Co.

Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. – People lined up overnight at the Liberty Baptist Church in Gallatin overnight to receive help to feed their families.

The first people in line showed up around 8:30 p.m. Monday ahead of the 9 a.m. opening Tuesday. The Sumner County Food Bank said they have 35,000 pounds of food that they hope will help feed more than 600 families in Sumner County.

Eighty seven volunteers will give out three boxes of food to each family that should last anywhere from four to 10 days

The Sumner County Food Bank worried they would not have enough food this month, but residents in Sumner County stepped up and pitched in. The Second Harvest Food bank made a huge donation as well.

Those picking up food will need an ID or utility bill to prove they live in Sumner County.

The food bank is also looking for more donations for next month's giveaway. For more information, visit the Sumner County Food Bank website.
