SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – A drive-thru food giveaway event will take place at Sunnybrook Church on Thursday.

According to a press release from the Community Action Agency of Siouxland, at 10 a.m. on Thursday, 800 boxes of food will be distributed with the help of the Sunnybrook Hope Center. This event will take place in the parking lot of Sunnybrook Church at 5601 Sunnybrook Drive.

“Food insecurity has remained high in Siouxland throughout the pandemic. Farmers to Families’ food boxes allow us to be the conduit between those that produce the food with those that need it,” said Community Action Agency Executive Director Jean Logan.

Participants are asked to enter the parking lot through Sunnybrook Drive.

“We are excited to partner with Community Action Agency for this event. Having partners like them, has been so beneficial to everyone who is struggling during these times,” said Operations Director of the Hope Center Gary Blankers.
