YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Alpha & Omega First Baptist Church in Youngstown is making sure people in the neighborhood are well fed.
On Tuesday, they held a drive-thru food pantry at the church on Winton Avenue.
Food was placed right into people’s cars.
It started at 9 a.m. and went on until all of the food was given away.
“We’re trying to do 140 bags of groceries. We got all kinds of nice things out here — eggs, cheese, desserts, bags of groceries, meat,” said Gloria Drake, president of Alpha & Omega First Baptist Church.
The church has been putting together food drives for 21 years.
Drake says this year they have seen a bigger turnout than years past but the community has stepped up and filled that greater need.
