On August 31, Way of the Cross soup kitchen in Alabama City held its monthly Love Kitchen, during which Little Caesars donates free pizzas to be served to the community.
The Way of the Cross, which serves food to the community Monday through Friday, offers more than food to those in need. The kitchen recently acquired mailboxes for the use of persons who do not have a home mailbox or post office box to receive mail.
Kenneth and Margaret Brown have been running the facility for 20 years. Kenneth said that the kitchen is a great ministry and a great way to serve the community.
“It’s a joy, you feel like you’re accomplishing something when you help somebody without any hope of a reward” Kenneth said.
While Kenneth is the director and Margaret is the coordinator, the kitchen would not be able to run without the help of volunteers like Bobby Hall, a military veteran and retired police officer who volunteers at the kitchen to help those in need and serve the community.
“I love helping people and seeing a smile on their faces” Margaret said of her favorite part of the ministry.
Persons looking to volunteer at Way of the Cross may contact the Browns at 256-543-1003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
