CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A Cordele church is preparing for their first food distribution of the year this weekend.

Northern Heights Baptist Church will give away more than 400 boxes of food and canned goods to families in need. The food is from Second Harvest Food Bank. Each household will receive one 26 lb box of food. The giveaway will take place outside the church. They will give away food until they run out.  

"It's a ministry of the church to help people that are in need and addition to the food we also try to meet their spiritual needs. We have prayer rooms for males and females in our church and people that want to participate in prayer while they're here to get food," said Jerry Johnson.

The giveaway is Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
