Kids of the Community partnered with Helping Hands Ministries on Saturday to hand out 300 food baskets to anyone who asked. Kids of the Community representative Barry Dishman estimated at least 400 people were waiting in line Saturday morning, some remaining after they had been told all food had been distributed.Helping Hands Ministry works through Second Harvest to purchase the food, but community support with donations and volunteering is necessary for the organization to continue activities.Heather Luttrell with Kids of the Community said, “McMinnville has been targeted as a major city in Tennessee that doesn’t receive enough assistance. We are working with Second Harvest Food Bank which received an anonymous $2,500 donation to go toward a mobile food bank in Warren County.
