COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - After several months of preparations and fundraising, 1,526 food boxes were passed out to area families with the Thanksgiving edition of Feeding Branch County. The distribution took place at the former Kroger location at Fairfield Plaza. A refrigerated truck donated by the WalMart Distribution Center was used to store the turkeys that were given away.
Over 300 volunteers were a part of the distribution. Sign-up is underway at the Branch Area Food Pantry for families wishing to receive food boxes for Christmas. That distribution will take place Saturday, December 15.
