MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - We want to give an update, as we are so appreciative of you, Michiana.

As you know, we partnered with the Food Bank of Northern Indiana for our Turkeys on the Table Challenge. On Friday, distribution was underway to make sure families have something to eat this Thanksgiving.

Today’s footage is from a distribution at the Twin Branch Bible Church in Mishawaka. It happened from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., but the lines were long, and people were lining up bright and early.

Volunteers told our team some people even started lining up as early as 7 a.m.! There were 200 turkeys to give out at this location alone.

“I think this is the first of, uh, we’ve done seven this week, so this is number seven; we have enough turkeys for 200 households, and from here, we go to North Liberty,” said John Scott, a volunteer.

Thanks to your donations, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana will be able to distribute 7,500 turkeys through 29 different distributions.
