TANNER, AL (WAFF) -

 A Madison County church wants to make sure everyone has something to eat.

Volunteers were on hand Saturday morning at Tanner United Methodist Church to organize and hand out packages of food. Anyone who showed up at the church were given one pound each of beans and rice, no questions asked. Pastor Ralph Johnson said it's a way for his church to give back to the community.

“It's our way as a church, as tithing as a church back to our community, giving back to our community or sharing back with the community what God has already entrusted us with,” said Tanner United Methodist Church Pastor Ralph Johnson.

The church hosts the giveaway every second weekend of every month. Johnson hopes to eventually be able to add more items to giveaway.
