KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The build site is a much quieter place now that most of the work on the house is done and nightfall has hit, but there is one area of the build site that continues to attract traffic-- the food tent.

"There are still workers on site and we were told to carry on as normal and have our normal meals. Right now on the site we have hamburgers, pizza and some other deliveries coming in," said Gay Lyons, the Food Coordinator for the build.

The deliveries keep on coming. Burger King, Krispy Creams, Pizza and Moe's. The options are endless, even though there are a lot less people on site today than there were during the past week.

"As of now, we have plenty of food for anybody who wants to come to the tent. Everybody has been very generous in this community. Almost anybody that we have asked for food, gave us food and we've had people just show up with cars with food. It's been great," explained Andie Ray, a Food Team Member at the build.

Food volunteers continue to brave the weather to deliver food and drinks to whatever workers are left on site.

"With the weather, it has really changed the way they finish things out on the site. We're just going to be prepared and have as much food available and take it down to the site if we need to. The trick is to try to keep it warm and keep it dry. We're jut going to roll with the punches and see what happens," said Becky Hancock, another Food Team Member.

Any leftover food is being brought to Second Harvest, so nothing goes to waste.
