BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Family Resource Center carried its weekly food giveaway to Booneville on Thursday.
The Center has been hosting its giveaways at the Furniture Market in Tupelo. However, Director Christi Webb said she wanted to make the giveaways accessible to more people.

Thursday's giveaway occurred in the parking lot of an old Fred's store.
"Tremendous help — I am a single mother, my kids are grown but I have grandkids," Patricia Leslie of Booneville said.
Booneville Mayor Chris Lindley helped in the distribution, and workers from the Headstart helped direct traffic.
Webb said the giveaways will continue to occur every Wednesday in Tupelo. She plans to return to Booneville and go to Fulton once a month.
The Center will next head to Fulton on March 23 for a giveaway at the Fulton City Park.
