The Wiregrass Area Food Bank is continuing to work through the COVID-19 outbreak.

This includes one of their programs that benefits the greatest at-risk population of the novel coronavirus.

The Brown Bag program benefits seniors all across the Wiregrass.

Low-income seniors that qualify for the program receive upwards of thirty pounds of food on the third Wednesday of each month.

Usually, the seniors come in to the food bank to pick up their food, but now it is a curbside delivery to lower the risk of spreading the virus.

"It is nutrition, so they need to stay healthy because the best defense for any virus is to be healthy keep your immunity up. And so, for those reasons we hope to continue this program," Wiregrass Area Food Bank Executive Director David Hanks said.

The Wiregrass Area Food Bank is in need of volunteers because some of their workers are elderly and have taken a step back from volunteering.

You can help volunteer at the food bank from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
