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.”
