Soup for the Soul continues to feed those in need
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.
