“We’ve always kind of had a problem with resources in this community,” said Keziah Hodge, a volunteer. “A lot of these people are regulars. We get them daily. This is not just a one-time thing, you know? We try to provide as much as we can. I think food is really important, a necessity. I think we’re making a big impact.”
