“Many families in America are struggling to put food on their tables and COVID-19 has greatly expanded the number of households in need,” said New Birth Senior Pastor Jamal Bryant said in a news release.

“As our nation and world continues to respond to this pandemic, it is important to support those families and individuals who may have limited access to resources and have been impacted due to unexpected financial hardships.”

Food and other items are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, visit wearenewbirth.org.
