Food giveaway at Dow Diamond draws hundreds

Posted: Updated:

Hundred of people turned out at Dow Diamond for a food giveaway Saturday morning. There was so much food six semi-trucks had to deliver it.

The organization, Filling Midland's Cup, put on the event as a way to give back. Enough food was on hand to feed 1,500 families.

Organizer Diana Butler said there is a lot of need in the community. The giveaway was open to everyone in the Great Lakes Bay Region.

"It's amazing the way this has turned out. It's amazing that we can show these people a little bit of grace, a little bit of love and have a fun time doing it," said Butler.

Cars started lining up at 4:30 a.m. Saturday. No one was turned away and there was more than enough items for everyone.

Leftover food will go to area shelters.
