Local Church Hosts Free Grocery Food Drive

Thousands of people from around Hampton Roads were able to get free groceries Saturday morning.

Liberty Baptist Church held their “Act of Love” event at their campuses in Hampton, North Suffolk and Chesapeake. The church also raised thousands of dollars to help feed people.

Church leaders say the event is in celebration of the upcoming Easter holiday.

More than 500 volunteers and staff helped during the donation.
