TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - One local church's food giveaway is back up and running after a temporary stoppage.
Members of Red Oak Grove Church had been distributing boxes of food every other Tuesday.

However, a food shortage several weeks ago caused the church to temporarily stop the giveaways.
"We stopped because they ran out of food at the location where the Mississippi farmers market received the food," Pastor Jeffery Gladney said.
The giveaway is a partnership with the Mississippi farmers market out of Okolona.
The church resumed the giveaway on Tuesday and will continue to distribute food every other Tuesday morning beginning at 11 a.m.
WTVA reporter Erin Wilson spoke with the pastor Tuesday about the giveaway. Watch the interview in the video above.
