Chevelle was one of thousands of people lining up for a food give away at Macedonia Baptist Church at 38th Street and 1st Avenue in Minneapolis. People lined up beginning at 1 p.m. for the event, that was scheduled to start at 5 p.m.. Organizers started serving people at 4:30.
"I'm just kind of flabbergasted right now, because I see so many people in need," said Rev. Charles Graham.
Last month, the church partnered with Second Harvest Heartland to host their first food give away. They served roughly 13-hundred people. On Tuesday, that number had likely tripled.
Some things simply don't need commentary.
