Soup for the Soul con­tin­ues to be a source of hope and com­for t for food- in­se­cure Dun­dalkians dur­ing the COVID- 19 pandemic.

Since its ar­rival in midMarch, the novel coro­n­avirus has wrought a harsh im­pact on the area – phys­i­cally, men­tally and fi­nan­cially. The un­em­ploy­ment rate in the state shot up to over 10 per­cent in a mat­ter of weeks. The state’s un­em­ploy­ment rate cur­rently sits at 6.9 per­cent.

Soup for the Soul has held food give­aways each month dur­ing the pandemic. Di­rec­tor Stacy Nagel and her team of vol­un­teers have sacri­ficed week­ends and hol­i­days to pro­vide food for food- in­se­cure res­i­dents. Soup for the Soul has held food give­aways on Me­mo­rial Day and the Four th of July this year, just to name a cou­ple.

Soup for the Soul holds a “sup­per ta­ble” at Dun­dalk United Methodist Church, 6903 Morn­ing­ton Road, on Mon­day evenings. The sup­per ta­ble in­cludes a food pantr y and clothes closet.

Those in­ter­ested in giv­ing do­na­tions to Soup for the Soul can do so by send­ing do­na­tions to 6903 Morn­ing­ton Road. You can also find more in­for­ma­tion about Soup for the Soul on the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s Face­book page, www. face­book. com/ dun­dalku­nit­ed­methodist.
