MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A church in Memphis moves back and forth to make sure people who have lost their jobs have something to eat.
The Lindenwood Christian Church in the city center partnered with the Mid-South Food Bank and used the church as a traveling food bank.
Families can drive and get food that will help their families.
“We know in giving and receiving there is extraordinary blessing,” said Reverend Geoffrey Mitchell.
According to the manpower and labor department, the number of people without jobs in Shelby County reached 14.3%. That is a 10 percent increase from the previous months.
“We have to take care of people in need during these difficult times,” said Reverend Mitchell.
The Mid-South Food Bank provides hundreds of pounds of food from meat, products, juices and other snacks.
75 people offered their time to help load each vehicle with food to feed those in need.
“The Bible says to whom much is given, much is expected. We know these are difficult times for many people. “For some people, it’s out of their control,” said Pastor Mitchell. “We who have good resources, time and energy, we want to make sure no one goes without in our environment.”
The church can help 500 families on Saturday and says it will continue to help those in need as long as possible.
