WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - One church in Clay County is giving back to its community.
Members of Third Mt Olive Baptist Church in West Point have been distributing food to families for the past three months.
Church member Alma Brown feels the need to give back to her community, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, is critical.
"We are trying to get more and more boxes for the people," Brown said.
The food boxes are part of the national Farmers to Families Food Box Program.
On Wednesday, the church distributed 75 boxes of food and more than 100 gallons of milk.
Volunteers distributed the food in approximately 20 minutes.
"I see new faces,” Brown added. “I don't know if they come from far or if they are community, but we are just serving all of God's people."
Brown said the church distributes food a couple of times each month.
