Northside Baptist Church held a food giveaway on Tuesday at Kentucky Fried Chicken.
As gray clouds pumped through an overcast sky, residents formed a long line.
They received a ticket for a two-piece meal with one side.
Northside Baptist Church members Kathy Smith and her husband, Jerry Smith, alongside Gene Hiskel, handed out the tickets to residents along with a Bible verse.
Kathy Smith said KFC provided an opportunity to branch at other parts of the Queen City.
Vasser’s Mini Mart previously hosted a food giveaway. Vasser’s owner Jamie Calvert is Hiskel’s son-in-law.
“We’ve been wanting to do a different location and reach a different side of Selma,” Kathy Smith said.
Kathy Smith praised Mark Woodson, KFC Owner, for allowing them to hold a food giveaway.
“Mark Woodson is a man of God and a blessing,” Kathy Smith said.
Kathy Smith said the theme for the food giveaway remains the same as other food giveaways: spreading God’s love in the community.
