DUBLIN, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center partnered with Buckhorn Food Ministry Monday to give back to the community.

They held a drive through food giveaway.

Those in need picked up boxes of food items which included, chicken, vegetables, fruits and juice.

It was the VA’s seventh food giveaway but the first one that was open to the whole community.

A line of cars was ready to receive food even before the start time.

“Just to be able to just provide just something to a family during this holiday season is very rewarding,” Keith Griffin, the Chief of Volunteer Services at the VA, said. “Here at the VA, we’re known as a hospital, but we try to help out any way we can.”

Organizers prepared 400 boxes before the giveaway began.
