MONTEVALLO – The Montevallo Rotary Club is preparing to help families in need during the upcoming Thanksgiving season.

The club will hold its Feed the Hungry food giveaway on Saturday, Nov. 20 in the Montevallo Elementary School parking lot.

The giveaway will start at 1 p.m. and last until supplies are exhausted.

“Anyone can now have a family Thanksgiving dinner,” Montevallo Rotary Club President Hunter Hall said.

Food will include pre-packaged meat, sides and produce, and will be sorted and placed into bags of about 15 pounds each.

“We believe that will feed most families,” Dr. Michael Anderson said.

According to Treasurer Ken Jones, the club’s goal is to give away 2 tons of food to more than 500 cars.

If the program is successful again this year, the club plans to continue it.

Participation in the giveaway is not limited to Rotarians; anyone may make a food or monetary donation.

Donations may be made payable to Montevallo Rotary Club, P.O. Box 21, Montevallo, or dropped off at Regions Bank of Montevallo.
