Greater New Hope Soup Kitchen   
    The Greater New Hope Soup Kitchen  served more than 1500 dinners to hungry people in Lancaster during August.  Now open four days per week, the need for nutritious dinners served at no charge seems to have picked up substantially since school started. Donations of food or money are gratefully received at 201 Ferguon St., Lancaster, SC  29720.  The facility is open from 4 - 6 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and is staffed entirely by volunteers. The number of dinners served each month has doubled in the last six months. 
Feeding the Hungry
Donations to Lancaster County food programs have fallen off recently. The recession increases the number of people facing hunger and the need for food.  The Van Wyck Press is happy to transport food to the agencies serving the needy in Lancaster.  If you have food that you would like to donate and would like us to transport it for you, let me know.
