Little Rock, Arkansas – The Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church at 22nd and Broadway has been providing meals for the homeless for almost 40 years.

Around eight this morning, volunteers started cooking, and they afterward distributed the meals for several hours.

According to Charles Swinson, a deacon at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, the event will now take place on the second Saturday of the month in order to accommodate the holidays.

“We usually have about 200 to 250 plates that go out on the first Saturday, but during Thanksgiving and Christmas months we do it on the Second Saturday to make it a little closer to the Holidays because we know there are other organizations that do the same,” Swinton said.

In good shape winter clothing is also welcome at the church, which will donate it to people in need.

For 21 years, Pastor Larry Johnson has served as the church’s leader.
