Mealtimes and location

Meals will be served between 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. in the basement facility at First United Methodist Church located (across from the Benton County Courthouse) at 154 W. Washington St, Warsaw, Mo.

UMCAccess to the Community Kitchen is by the ramp along the side of the church.

Eligibility requirements

The Greater Food Bank of Central Missouri requires participants to complete and submit an income statement, and to sign in upon arrival.

Seeking community support

Director of the Soup & More Community Kitchen, Sharon May, hopes the ministry will be supported by many individuals and churches in the area. Mrs. May said:

We need volunteers and would also appreciate financial support.

This has been on my heart and mind for several years, and now it is going to happen, thanks to Linda Price and the First United Methodist Church.
