LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - One Lynchburg program wants to make sure folks have food on the table this Thanksgiving.

Food for Thought will distribute produce boxes Friday and Monday.

Those boxes weigh over 20 pounds each and have a variety of fresh produce in them.

They’ll give the boxes out at Lynchburg City Schools’ curbside pickup locations.

They say the boxes are for families who have children under the age of 18.

“We know this is a difficult time for families, just with COVID and a lot of loss of jobs and just the challenging time, so we wanted to be able to provide extra food,” said Julie Farley, Food for Thought director.

They have a total of 200 boxes prepared to give away. Those boxes come courtesy of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
