ASHLAND, Ore. -- Southern Oregon With Justice partnered with Ashland Community Peace Meal to provide food to people throughout Ashland. From 3:30 P.M. until 4:45 P.M. volunteers visited ODOT Weigh Station, Ashland Creek Park, Lithia Park, The Grove and Toleman Creek.
Volunteer, Vannessa Houk, cam to drop off food at Lithia Park. She and other volunteers had their cars filled with warm drink, hot food, and utensil for hungry people of all economic backgrounds.
Houk said she and her family lost their home in the fire and handing out food is what keeps her going.
Another man who regularly relies on the organization for food said he is overwhelmingly grateful for the service they provide.
