HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

More than 20,000 pounds of vegetables are on their way to dinner tables across Alabama.

Kids and parents from Asbury United Methodist Church sorted squash, potatoes and beans into bags on Friday. The bags were then distributed to more than 15 area agencies like Downtown Rescue Mission, CASA, and church food pantries. The agencies in turn hand them out to people in need of a hot and healthy meal.

"We got 20,000 pounds that equals 60,000 servings of healthy, nutritious food to feed the hungry," said Mary Lynn Botts, the Alabama Program Coordinator of Society of Saint Andrew.

The Society of Saint Andrew has delivered more than 13 million pounds of salvaged potatoes and other food to the needy in Alabama. This has resulted in approximately 40 million servings of food going to Alabama's hungry.
