Hundreds Could Be Left Hungry
By: Arnold Wyrick

(Carrier Mills, IL)--The Ministerial Alliance Community Kitchen in Carrier Mills has been meeting the needs of the community for more then 10 years, but that may all come to an end in few days. That's because the kitchen is facing some serious financial problems, and a big reduction in food donations. " We're going to be gone. The light bills, phone bills, and gas they all gotta be paid just like at your own house. I'm proud to work here, and I don't know what I'll do if it closes," says Eva Headrick of Carrier Mills, and a volunteer in the kitchen since it opened. If they don't get the funds needed to pay their bills, the gas and electric companies have served notice that they'll be cutoff on May 28th. " The food pantry in Evansville sends food over and that's helping keep the shelves stocked, but it doesn't pay the bills," says Leon Dunning of the Ministerial Alliance. "We've gone from 13 churches to 5 on donating to us, and it's not enough to keep the doors open. We need some financial help. I believe God put us here for a reason. Along with the meals we also provide free clothing and boxes of food supplies for people," Dunning said. Now the only thing that will keep the kitchen open and hundreds of people throughout the are from going hungry is donations.

If you would like to help, all you have to do is send your donation to:
