The Kershaw County Board of Realtors will volunteer the second Friday of each month to help prepare and serve lunch at Food for the Soul. "Our volunteer service at Food for the Soul promotes a Realtor goal of improving our neighborhoods through company programs and consumer outreach,"

The Board’s membership is comprised of local real estate agents who adopt and follow a Professional Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, which entitles them to use the Realtor Designation.

Food for the Soul was founded in 2009 and serves free, hot meals four days a week to anyone in need. On average, 67 people are served each day. It also runs an emergency shelter for the homeless when overnight temperatures are expected to be 36 degrees or lower.

Food for the Soul depends upon volunteers to help serve each meal as well as food donations and monetary contributions to buy food.

"(The Board of Realtors is) our latest addition and the first business group to join with the churches in our network of regular, rotating groups supporting our soup kitchen on a monthly basis," Ogburn said.
