Hundreds of cars were backed up on Antioch Road with seniors waiting to get free groceries and household items while supplies last.

“It was blocked up for miles and so that speaks to the need and its really encouraging for the council on aging to be able to step up and fill a little of that gap,” EBR Metro Councilwoman Denise Marcelle told WAFB.
