Local soup kitchen works extra hard during COVID-19 outbreak

Amid concerns over coronavirus, the Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen is working overtime to serve those who need help most in Huntsville.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Folks at the Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen have been a lot busier than normal amid the COVID-19 outbreak. In addition to serving food to Huntsville's homeless communities, they have been busy making food boxes and delivering them to seniors who have reached out asking for help. They're also helping more local children than usual.

"Tomorrow we are going to low income housing and we are going to be passing out lunches to kids who don't have transportation to get the free lunches," said Theresa Wilson, owner of the Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen. "And if we need to bring more, we will bring more."

Right now, the Rose of Sharon is asking for food donations to help them continue to be able to serve folks most in need. Canned goods, frozen food and even fresh food is all being accepted. You can donate money online on their website or drop off food donations right at the Rose of Sharon, which is located at 723 Arcadia Circle in Huntsville.
