Volunteers who work to feed the homebound in Bowie County will soon be serving the same mission from a new kitchen.
The folks at Manna Kitchen delivered their last meals on March 22. They are packing up their pantry and starting Wednesday will start cooking as the Community Kitchen at Tapp Memorial Methodist Church in New Boston.
The move comes after the Chapel of Light Church announced it was ending the Manna Kitchen program.
The program’s director said the community stepped up to ensure none of the 80 people enrolled go hungry.
“Once they heard or the word went out that Manna Kitchen was closing and everybody found out, I have had so many calls, ‘What can we do? What can we do? We need to keep the kitchen going,’” said Sue Anderson, director of the Manna Kitchen/Community Kitchen.
Anderson said one thing they need to keep the kitchen going is donations.
