ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many families need a helping hand to put food on the table this year. A Dougherty County church plans to fulfill the need.  

In what has become a holiday tradition, First Apostolic Church plans to distribute hundreds of boxes of food to South Georgia families this weekend. The church will be able to feed at least 600 people with turkeys, hams and other food.

Pastor Betty Jackson says they'll distribute the food until it runs out Saturday and she expects more turnout than ever before.

"With everything that's going on in the world, in the nation, in Georgia, there is a desperate need for this and fortunately for us, we're just blessed. We've been blessed by people in the community who have contributed so that others might have food," said Jackson.

First Apostolic Church is located at 421 Lumpkin Street in Dougherty County. Food distribution will begin at 7 Saturday morning. The church still needs donations. If you'd like to help, call 229-869-1549.
