Members of the Red River Church of God in Christ distributed food to families on Thursday. The church is located on Abney Street; however the food distribution was held under the Red River bridge near the boat launch.
The Journal spoke with La’NaTasha Jackson, the coordinator of the event. She pointed out the many pallets of food boxes and the pallets of gallons of fresh milk that were being distributed.
The boxes were labeled “USDA Farmers to Families Food Box” and the milk was from Borden. Volunteers from the church carried the boxes and crates of milk and placed it in people’s vehicles.
