GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) - For the second day this week, a line stretched around the parking lot outside Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
The people were waiting for food handed out by The Foodbank's mobile unit.
But some have asked 2 NEWS whether all that food is going to people who need it.
So we asked The Foodbank's CEO Michelle Riley about how they determine who's eligible to get the food.
"This drop wasn't open just for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base," Riley says. "It was also open to the public."
Riley says just like everyone else at the event, base workers had to sign a form saying they're in need of the food.
Riley says the food pantry normally does mobile food drops like these in Greene County each week because it doesn't have as many pantries as Montgomery County.
"With or without the politics going on today we would be in Greene County," Riley says.
Riley says base officials are the ones who requested to have the Greene County drops moved to a spot outside Wright-Patt this week.
"When we got the call to move the location, it wasn't a new drop," Riley says. "It was to move the location here. We jumped at the chance to support our service men and women."
Between the two days the Foodbank says it helped 581 families. It couldn't give us a breakdown of how many work at the base.
But base officials say there is a need there, which is why they're working to open a food pantry on-base.
Salary information we looked up for federal employees in our area shows the lowest Grade workers, Grade One, start at $20,694.
Riley says for those who will only get 60 percent of their paychecks this Friday because of the four furlough days, the food they get here can make a difference.
"I think there's a misperception of what need looks like," Riley says.
The Foodbank is holding another mobile food drop in Greene County Friday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Xenia Christian Center.
