ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Peach State Health Plan brought its "turkey tour" to south Georgia Wednesday afternoon.

The insurance provider handed out turkeys and fresh produce at two boys and girls club locations in Albany.

Their mobile market provides healthy food to families across Georgia.

They added turkeys for Thanksgiving.

"It's unfortunate, but its true that there are many, many food deserts in the areas we serve," said Dr. Beverly Lucier of Peach State Health Plan. "Which means they don't have ready access to good fresh fruits and vegetables so we though we'd travel the lands and give it to them."

They're giving out up to 100 turkeys at every stop.
