ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany church has made it their mission to feed people in need and April 3rd they'll help hundreds of families.

A truck full of food will be delivered to the First Apostolic Church on Lumpkin Street as part of Feed the Children.

Volunteers will distribute the boxes of food and essentials to 400 pre-identified families in Albany.

"This is just a great event for the city of Albany which has over 43 to 48 percent poverty in the city," said Pastor Betty Jackson, with First Apostolic Church.

The giveaway begins at 9 am.  The church holds these giveaways a couple times a year.
