ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany church is lending a hand to help feed area families.

Members of Christ United Methodist Church held a food giveaway at the Food Bank of Southwest Georgia.

The church purchased more than 500 boxes of food for people. Those who received boxes could also take home as much produce as they wanted.

"This is our first time to do this and our missions committee decided on a couple of things we would start doing because we see the need and it's a blessing to us and to them also," Janice Dollar, Christ United Methodist Church.

The church says this is a project they plan to do often.
