Minnie’s Food Pantry, 10th Episcopal District of the AME Church, K104 and Smooth RB 105.7 have joined forces to “Feed 5000” at Paul Quinn College.
Paul Quinn College sits in a food desert and with all the financial stress and hardships amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, the event organizers wanted to provide food for residents in this underserved community as well as the college students who are still on campus at Paul Quinn.
Along with the radio stations and Minnie’s Food Pantry, multiple churches in the 10th Episcopal District of the AME Church, are coming together with a goal of providing meals for more than 5,000 people.
“The need is great in this area and as the church, we want to do our part to provide needed resources,” said Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, presiding prelate of the 10th Episcopal District and chairman of the Board of Trustees at Paul Quinn College.
“We are proud to team up with Minnie’s Food Pantry, 10th Episcopal District of the AME Church and Paul Quinn College to offer relief to the many families affected by this crisis in our community,” said McGuire.
