ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of people who need food in Dougherty County are getting it thanks to the Food Bank of Southwest Georgia.

Two trucks rolled into the parking lot at Dougherty Comprehensive high school Saturday with tons of food.

A lot of people were waiting in line for a box of non perishable goods, like rice and peanut butter.

The food bank also handed out cartons of eggs and fruit to those who showed up.

Boxes were also distributed at the Food Bank on Phillips Road.

More than 700 parcels of food was available between the two locations
