Walker County

Sites throughout Walker County began offering meals to families in need Thursday.

The Walker County Community Feeding Program has been launched to help children, seniors and others who have limited access to food during the COVID-19 outbreak. Those in need will receive a hot meal on a first-come, first-served basis from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Families with children and special needs members can be served from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.

“We’re just trying to do what we can for our community, just trying to bless them,” said Carbon Hill City Council Member April Herron. “Because right now everyone is unsure. And this was a way to just try to bless our community in some way.”

In addition, T-Town Financial Tax Services offered a free meal to anyone who wanted one Thursday.

“We just wanted to feed the community and give back,” said T-Town Financial Tax Services Owner Conseullo Washington. “We asked everybody to spread the word, and we’ll be doing this again on Saturday.”

Herron said the Walker County Community Feeding Program will operate Monday through Friday until April 3, and Washington said they’ll be giving more meals away Saturday at T-Town Financial Tax Services, located at 1511 Dinah Washington Ave. in Tuscaloosa.
