More join effort to help needy

On a mission to provide a weekly meal to the needy, about 50 folks representing every walk of life came together Tuesday evening to learn more about the program slated to begin in September.
College students and the elderly, artists and social workers, the rich and the not-so-rich, gathered at the Stone Center to see what they could do to help provide “More than a Meal” to those members of the community who could use some assistance from time to time. (June 23, 2010, Page 1A)

Feeding the Hungry

Members of the community recently started a program in Oxford called “More Than a Meal.” This is a community meal served to those in need within the Oxford area. In addition to a meal, tutoring is available to help kids with their homework or read to the children. Books, hygiene products and, most importantly, fellowship are provided to those in need. While the program is  currently up and running in various churches in Oxford, organizers are working to streamline the service on Sept. 7 to provide these services from 5 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the Stone Center. Those interested in being involved in this program are urged to attend an informational meeting at 6:30 p.m. June 22 at the Stone Center. (June 5, 2010)
