During the Facebook Live announcement, Whittaker and Faith CDC administrator Freida Graves showed the contents of the box. In addition to food, ordinary people can also obtain household and hygiene items, hats and gloves.

Whittaker also shared that he purchased two pantries to place on the farm, for a total of 10 pantries.
