CALVERT COUNTY—The Lusby Charge (Eastern and St. John United Methodist Churches) and Solomons United Methodist Church have joined forces to help feed the hungry in southern Calvert County. Beginning Tuesday, August 11, the collaboration will operate the More Tasty Blessings Community Kitchen, located at East-John Youth Center, 11835 Mill Bridge Road in Lusby. Complimentary meals will provided for anyone in the community on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6-8 p.m.
Nearly 1 in 8 people experience hunger, and for children, that figure increases to 1 in 5, according to End Hunger in Calvert County. Organizers say the community kitchen is just one step toward alleviating the escalating hunger challenge in our community.
Our churches are excited to do all that we can to help feed the hungry in our communities, said Rev. Marvin R. Wamble, pastor of the Lusby Charge. It is truly our pleasure to be able to provide sit down meals twice a week for families and individuals. We believe that everyone should have access to a good meal; its good for the body and the soul.
In addition to feeding those in need, the collaboration soon plans to provide community resources, healthy cooking tips, and information to help their neighbors to live a healthier and more prosperous life.
