Centro Hispano begins meal distribution

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Tuesday we told you about new partnerships aimed at providing meals to children in need over the summer, Wednesday we were there as several organizations teamed up to help Centro Hispano pass out food to kids in the latino community.

“So many of our families in the latino community are losing their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, so they can’t provide for their families like they normally would, so we are trying to fill that need as much as we can.”
