LINCOLNTON––Feeding the poor is a very big part of the Christian message.

And according to Christian Ministry of Lincoln County Executive Director Mitzi Williams, the local charitable organization’s soup kitchen is an integral part of its mission. Every day of the year, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., the soup kitchen is open, serving a hot noontime meal to an average of 143 people. That’s 42,308 meals served last year, as Williams recently noted. It involves 225 volunteers, and it uses volunteer groups of five to 10 people to cover weekends and holidays.  

“A group of at least five people is needed,” Williams explained. “The group will be responsible for opening up, cooking, serving, cleaning up and closing up the soup kitchen.”

If you can volunteer, call soup kitchen co-ordinator Teena Sigmon at (704) 748-4961. Or, if you have questions, call Williams at Christian Ministry at (704) 732-0383.

She added that it takes a mighty big list to make it all happen. This includes 100 each of 10-inch Styrofoam plates, 12-ounce Styrofoam cups, plastic forks and spoons and paper napkins, all on a daily basis. Plus, staffers need plastic gloves, and Clorox cleaner and tall, 55-gallon, kitchen-style trash bags are essential. Gallon-sized teabags are needed, too, as are dishwashing liquid, kitchen towels, large bottles of hand-sanitizer and 10-ounce cans of green beans, corn and salmon.

If you can help supply these vital needs and contribute to the very worthy and Christian cause of feeding the poor, just as Jesus Himself would do, Williams encourages you to come by or call Christian Ministry.

Located at 207 S. Poplar St. in Lincolnton, Christian Ministry is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Call (704) 732-0383 to learn more.
