FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- The COVID-19 pandemic is putting a strain on the nation's food supply and making it hard for some families to put meals on the table.

Folks in Fayetteville will get some welcome relief from that on Thursday morning. Second Harvest is teaming up with the National Guard, Cumberland County Emergency Management and Team Rubicon to pass out a week's worth of food at Crown Coliseum.

The food bank will hand out five-pound bags of chicken breasts and fruit along with a box of produce.

On Tuesday, Carlie C's and House of Raeford Farms organized a 40,000-pound chicken giveaway at a Fayetteville church.
