Tuscaloosa’s One Place hosting food giveaway Friday


The cost of groceries is constantly on the rise.

And that is why one agency is helping families with food.

Tuscaloosa’s One Place is hosting its first food giveaway of the year Friday at 10 a.m. at the organization, located at 810 27th Ave. in Tuscaloosa.

Each family will receive about 70 pounds of food, and items include nonperishables and perishables like produce, bread and meat.

“We realize that during COVID or just before COVID that food insecurity was a major issue in our community,” said TOP Director of Communication Ashley Cornelius-Hester. “This was all compounded by COVID, and it now compounded by increasing grocery prices, so families need these resources, and this is an area where we have the capacity to be able to fill that need and make sure that families have food on the table.”

The food will be given away on a first come, first served basis.
