A food giveaway will take place later today in Martin.
The Martin Baptist Church, in partnership with the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, will distribute free food to all qualifying residents of the Martin area of Stephens and Franklin Counties today from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm at the church’s gymnasium.
Organizers said the participant’s signature on the form they sign at the Food Pantry serves as proof of income and no other documents are required.
In addition, program benefits and participation are made available to everyone regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.
The distribution will take place on a first come, first served basis and will be held rain or shine.
Martin Baptist Church is located just north of the caution light in downtown Martin on the west side of Highway 17.
