On Wednesday, more than 5,000 boxes of food were delivered to our veterans and the elderly in Huntsville, all thanks to The Legacy Center and several local partners.
Boxes include produce, frozen food, meat, and dairy. State Representative Laura hall, AARP Alabama, more than fifty Interdenominational faith-based churches, Alabama A&M Cooperative Extension Systems, University of Alabama Huntsville, and the Huntsville Housing Authority helped load and deliver the food.
The food was delivered to residents in the Johnson & Todd Housing Authority, Dublin Apartments, and Restoration Church.
This is the fifteenth week the groups have teamed up to help the community in need.
Leaders say they worked to feed the need during the pandemic.
“We’ve all come together to say, not on our watch. We are not going to perpetuate what we see and hear as being gloom and doom. We’re going to go take hope and peace and love, in the form of food and nutrition to our communities,” says The Legacy Center Chief Visionary Officer, Chanda Mills Crutcher.
Organizers say they will continue to serve the community every other Wednesday morning.
