SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - With Thanksgiving just days away, the founder and CEO of Second Chance Last Opportunity in Newtown, Dr. April Glasco, is preparing for the hungry families.

“There has been so many individuals needing help. We just have enough for about that is coming. Because as you know Thanksgiving is Thursday... This is our emergency food pantry for the families that need that assistance,” she says.

Other Suncoast non-profits have seen an increase of families needing food, according to All Faiths Food Bank, they have seen a 120% increase in food distributions since last year.

Second Chance Last Opportunity will be having a free Thanksgiving Dinner Drive-Through - at The Serving Spoon, located at 1825 S Osprey Ave, Sarasota, FL 34239. For more information click here.
