Volunteers at the First Baptist Church of Mt. Vernon helped distribute 10,000 pounds of fresh produce in the church’s parking lot on Wednesday, July 15. The distribution was part of the Missouri Disaster Relief Response to COVID-19, which is working in partnership with the USDA’s Farmers to Families program to help provide food to those in need during the pandemic. The produce, which was divided into 25-pound boxes, was distributed to an estimated 800 families.
