Canton Community Kitchen

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:16 PM EDT
Our last charity in the running this month is "The Community Kitchen" in Canton.

It provides hot meals to the needy in Haywood County.

Beverly Brock, Community Kitchen Director, "it takes a little swallowing of pride to come to a place like this."

April Parker, recipient, "before this, I didn't know where my next meal might be."

Beverly Brock, "we've got families, we've got elderly, the disabled; it's really the gamut that we have coming here to eat."

Participants get a home-cooked meal prepared and served daily by volunteers.

Nourishment, though, is not only for the body but also the soul.

Beverly Brock, "It's mostly giving food stability to homes where they don't have to choose between the electric bill and buying food or medicine and food."

A thousand dollars would buy additional chicken and more, "we go through a lot of paper products, coffee and tea... so it would really be in keeping the program going."

An unexpected blessing for this ministry in Canton.
