Golden Harvest Food Bank is hosting its inaugural Christmas “Yule Get Food” event on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Aiken warehouse, located at 81 Capital Drive off of Banks Mill Road.

Food will be distributed free of charge to residents at the event. The food will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

A very special guest all the way from the North Pole will make an appearance.

“We are so fortunate to live in a generous and caring community, and this is an opportunity to share that directly with those in need in the community,” said Mike Gibbons, Golden Harvest's chief development officer for South Carolina.
