Donations from a local fast-food chain helped ease COVID-19 strains on The Kitchen, a food charity in Moulton, last week.
KFC donated 85 boxes of chicken to The Kitchen, also known locally as the COC Food Pantry, last Monday, according to reports.
The Kitchen Director Lashundra Craig told reporters the soup kitchen is open for free hot meals to anyone on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She said more visitors, especially children, have utilized its services since the coronavirus pandemic.
“It felt good. It was a good atmosphere out here, the crowd was moving, we were able not to cook today, and that made me and my volunteers feel good,” Craig said last week.
Visitors to The Kitchen also received a bag of sweet potatoes and face masks last week.
The COC Food Pantry and Kitchen, located at 13533 Alabama 157 in Moulton, became a member of the North Alabama Food Bank in 2014 and provides over 240 families with groceries a month, according to the soup kitchen's website. The Kitchen was expanded to serve hot meals to the homeless, veterans, children and migrants in Lawrence County. For more information, visit the COC Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen website.
