Jennings County Coordinating Council Director Bee Murphy was kept busy Tuesday picking up a totally unexpected bonanza for clients of the non-profit.

Enlisting her husband, Mike, the duo picked up crates of fresh vegetables, including tomatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, onions, spinach, cauliflower and various leaf lettuces from Jennings County Schools' cafeterias.

The items were ordered and expected to be used for students; however, the closing of the local schools due to the coronavirus threat meant these food items would be wasted unless put to good use.
And that is exactly what will happen now.

According to Bee, the donation "will help a lot for the people we serve." Normally, the Coordinating Council receives some fresh fruits, but
hardly ever does the group get uncooked vegetables.

The items will be given away this week as clients arrive at the 201 Hoosier Street charity. Hours for the Coordinating Council are 9 to 1 Monday through Friday.

"It's wonderful they don't want this to go to waste," said Bee as she and her husband climbed into their pick-up truck.
