Bi-weekly food and clothing giveaway run by 'Feeding God's People'

The organization is completely self-funded and are looking to give more clothes starting with their next giveaway on Dec. 11.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — In Downtown Memphis, an organization has started running a bi-weekly food and clothing giveaway. 

"Feeding God's People" have given warm meals, clothes and hygiene kits to the homeless at B.B. King and Washington. Comprised of only family and friends that help out, the organization is completely self-funded. 

Avis Crutchfield is the founder of Feeding God's People. 

"I had a vision when I was at work one day driving a van, and I saw a lot of homeless people laying out on the ground in the grass," Crutchfield said. "It's like God was like 'you need to do something,' so at that very moment I did something, and the next week we were feeding."

Crutchfield said it has been four years since the group started their work feeding the homeless.
