Radford-Fairlawn Daily Bread serves over 20,000 meals this year
RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ) - A local organization is working non-stop to make sure people have meals to eat during the pandemic.
Radford-Fairlawn Daily Bread provides meals at no cost for people in need.
They’ve had to close their dining room and switch to only take-out and Meals on Wheels.
In nine months, they’ve served over twenty thousand meals. This week the kitchen served 300.
Radford-Fairlawn Program Manager Dora Butler said there is a need in the community for meals, especially now, due to the pandemic.
“Families that used to have two people in the household and now they have eight because their children have returned, or they are elderly; family members are back in their homes. So, it is just a critical need right now,”said Butler.
The organization says everything they do wouldn’t be possible without help from their community.
