TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo's Salvation Army will not be able to serve the daily 200 meals a day to the homeless and others who suffer food insecurities due to kitchen renovations.
However, starting July 12, the Tupelo-Lee County Hunger Coalition will serve two meals a day for the rest of the month, possibly through the middle of August.
Hunger Coalition board member Hannah Maharrey said other organizations have donated to the cause.
“The bread was donated, the condiments were donated, and the lunch meat was donated by the St. Luke food pantry through the hunger coalition. The fruit that we’ll have tomorrow is donated by the Faith Food Pantry in Nettleton. We're using the kitchen here at All Saints, so it’s just really a community effort,” Maharrey said.
The meals will be served in the parking lot of the Salvation Army.
