A South Georgia food bank is going to be busy over the next two months providing food to those in need.

The Second Harvest of South Georgia is planning to hand out almost nine thousand pounds of food this weekend. The agency will also distribute food in Worth and Terrell Counties with a donation form the United Way.

Branch director Jim Case said donations continue to be down and the number of families needing help continue to rise.

"It is a thrill for someone to call and tell you thank you. I crumble with humbleness when that happens because it's not my food, it's their food," said Case, Albany Branch Director.

The Cordele food giveaway will begin at 8:30am Saturday at the Northern Heights Baptist Church, and will end when the food is gone.
