Jones County holds food distribution
JONES COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Jones County workers say they’re happy to be back to work, distributing free vegetables to people in need.
Each Monday Jones County’s Office of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension holds weekly drive-thru food distribution at the county civic center.
Last week’s event was canceled because of Hurricane Isaias.
People lined up their cars early, hoping to get a box full of fresh produce, including apples, cucumbers, potatoes, and cabbage.
Sarah Ware, food coordinator says, “We’re able to get rid of all the food quickly. Everybody gets the food in the community. They’re happy, win-winwe’re happy, it’s a win win.”
The food distribution events will wrap up for the summer on August 24th.
