During the COVID-19 pandemic, there are numerous reports regarding the impact this virus is having on our county, state and country. “The majority of the news, although informative, can also be depressing for so many to hear,” said Bishop Washington of Whole Man Ministries (WMM). 

But finally, some good news! Whole Man Ministries, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, The Ministers’ Conference of Winston-Salem, and Love Out Loud, is feeding the community catered meals Monday through Friday from 6-7 p.m.

“We do not want any children going to bed hungry,” said Pastor Camilla. “We are on the front lines to make sure this does not happen.”  No doubt there is a drastic impact on our community and many white, black, and brown alike are in need of this service. Already several families have taken advantage of this opportunity. 

“The good thing about the way we distribute the meals is that no one has to get out their vehicles. We call it ‘drive-thru grab and go,’ no questions asked,” said Bishop Washington.

“The way it works is a person or family drives through and tells us how many meals are needed for their family and we give it to them, no questions asked. Then they drive off and we service the next vehicle. The program has been successful since starting it on Tuesday, March 31. On average 96 families have driven through. The more people who know about it, the more families we can feed.”

Pastor Camilla continued, “We are exercising the CDC regulations such as utilizing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and keeping social distances.”

Whole Man Ministries is on the front lines, along with its volunteers, giving smiles as well as encouraging and uplifting words to each car that drives through. There has been much excitement shown by the kindness of the volunteers desiring to help others. Several people have driven up to express their gratitude for the volunteers and the feeding site and that they needed nothing, but just wanted to make a donation.

“Overall this has been great for the community, particularly for those who need it the most. There are tears of relief from mothers wondering how they were going to feed their children. Each meal contains dinner, snacks, and cereal for breakfast in the morning,” said Lashawnda Hylton, a volunteer. 

Now, this is some good news the community has been waiting for!

All are welcome; there are two other feeding sites where meals are distributed. For more information, please contact Whole Man Ministries at 336-785-2080.
