Crossroads UMC Cooks Keeping Up With High Demand

Crossroads United Methodist Church has served more than 21,000 meals this week.
WASHINGTON – Volunteers are working around the clock to feed hundreds of hungry tornado victims and volunteers.

Staff members at Crossroads United Methodist Church have prepared more than 21,000 meals this week. Since last Sunday, workers have slept only a few hours a night to keep up with the demand.

The church has spent less than $1,500 for the food. Workers said it’s made possible through the generosity of others.

Volunteer and owner of Firehouse Pizza in Washington, Stan Cohen said, “We've served over 21,000 meals out of this facility and it's almost entirely because of the volunteers and the donations from businesses around this community. It has been truly amazing."

Nikki Hudson, the church’s food coordinator said, “There’s no way anybody could humanly do what we have done, without the prayers and God being in charge. I think it's kind of ironic and God's sense of humor because little did we know when we were doing all these weddings and little things that food was preparing us for this."

Crossroads UMC is hosting Washington’s Thanksgiving meal this Thursday. It will take place at 11:30 A.M. and is open to the public.
