Despite the rain on Tuesday, Mount Zion Baptist Church and Out of The Garden held their seventh food giveaway since April 7. "People are still hurting; people are still in need," says Marcus Thomas, the church's Dream Team director. Tuesday's giveaway, held under the canopy near the main sanctuary "to keep people out of the elements,"served 374 cars, representing more than 1,000 people, Thomas says. The giveaway included fruits, vegetable, bread, 800 sandwiches from Chick Fil A, 100 boxed lunches from United Healthcare, 2,000 care kits from Cone Health and 2,400 canned Dasani Water drinks from Coke-A-Cola.
