TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Tupelo Salvation Army is working on a plan to serve food despite not having a kitchen for the next three months.
Maj. Whitney Morton said that because of renovations to the gymnasium and kitchen, the 200 meals they provide every day will not be provided on campus.
"We're also working with the hunger coalition and local groups to find a way through volunteer service to still provide those meals despite the fact that we don't have a kitchen,” Morton said.
With the gym being shut down, the non-profit will not be able to provide cooling stations for the coming month.
"We don't have that completed plan done at this point to say exactly what that's going to look like, but we are diligently working on that because it is summer, and along with the heat comes the hunger."
Another option for the needy is to go to the Social Service building on Carnation Street, where the food pantry is.
