The Pass the Plate campaign, which will conclude on Sunday, Aug. 14, focused on “passing the plate” in local civic groups, community organizations, businesses, and churches around the county to support the organization’s efforts in feeding and sheltering the county’s hungry and homeless. Food for the Soul is a faith-based nonprofit community organization which operates a soup kitchen and emergency shelter program. They are currently feeding as many as 100 or more people a day, offering temporary emergency shelter to individuals and families in crisis, providing daytime services for the homeless including respite from the extreme heat of the summer day, and developing a winter shelter program to offer homeless people a safe and warm place to sleep overnight when the weather is dangerously cold.

Visit the Food for the Soul Center, open 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, or contact facility director Fred Ogburn at 432-4771. Visit the organization online at or on Facebook.
