The Berlin Lions Club hosted a drive-thru food giveaway on Saturday.

The club said they were giving away fresh produce from the farmers at the Berlin Fairgrounds as part of the "Farmers to Families Food Box" initiative from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.

"The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is collaborating with farmers, ranchers, specialty crop producers, food processors and distributors, and non-profit organizations to ensure that all Americans have access to the fresh and wholesome food they need during the COVID-19 national emergency," the Lions Club said in a post on Facebook.

The club said they planned to distribute 1,500 pre-packaged boxes of produce.

The giveaway was in a drive-thru format and everyone was required to remain in their vehicles at all times.
