WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - A West Point community group fed hundreds of Clay County residents and workers Wednesday in West Point at Mary Holmes College.
Seventeen years ago, Alma Brown put out a call to her community to care for their brothers and sisters in Christ.
The menu consisted of fried chicken, corn, green beans, chicken and dressings and sweet desserts.
This gave residents a chance for fellowship with others they normally wouldn't see regularly.
"We thank God for allowing all these people come together to fellowship, talk and to love one another because God said if you see about the poor he will reward you deeply," said Brown. "So this is why we are here today to put a smile on someone face."
The dinner was free from noon until 2 p.m. and organizers say they have been planning for weeks.
