Real Stories of Hunger

Wade, NC
On Tuesday, February 24, 2015 Cumberland County was faced with an accumulation of snow that crippled businesses and homes. It left folk confined to their homes with limited resources. I routinely checked on the elderly neighbors on my street. I had a request to make turnip soup. I had no idea what that was or how to make it. Thank God for Google. I made the best, the largest and the tastiest turnip soup from the fresh turnip greens donated by a neighbor that had turnips in abundance. The soup was delivered and enjoyed with hot cornbread. Next thing I know, I’ve gained access to a local food pantry delivering bags of fresh produce, dry goods and breads to nearby churches and seniors. It has grown into a ministry of supplementing food supplies to those that cannot make it to the store. The rest is history. Now we have volunteers and established “Project Food Barn.”
