From 10 Saturday morning until noon, anyone in need of food assistance was able to stop by the drive-thru distribution, and the pre-boxed items were given on a first come first served basis for up to 300 homes.
With it being the month of Ramadan, those with the Islamic Society say giving is very important to them.
