One Meal continues to feed the homeless and working poor in downtown Mobile every Sunday evening at 4; donations and volunteers always needed
As Christmas with its cold winter weather draws near, citizens are encouraged to think about volunteering with or making a donation to One Meal, a small non-profit group that serves an average of 150 meals to the homeless and working poor every Sunday at 4 p.m.
Operating a food line from the parking lot of St. Louis Street Missionary Baptist Church in downtown Mobile, Mike McKinley, with the help of volunteers and contributions from individuals, churches, schools, civic clubs, service organizations and businesses, manages to feed a hot nourishing meal to up to 200 hungry people weekly. The mission's needs range from Styrofoam 3-compartment trays and plastic forks to any type of meat to canned vegetables and fresh fruit.
Call McKinley at 379-9014 to find out how to help. In the photo above, McKinley prepares pots of soup to feed to the homeless on a Sunday evening at 4.
