Kroc Center serves lunches to children during the week of Biloxi’s Spring Break
Mississippi Gulf Coast (Monday, April 13, 2020) – The Salvation Army, Mississippi Gulf Coast, is increasing efforts to meet needs caused by COVID-19. The Salvation Army Kroc Center is serving lunch to children 0-18 years old this week, Monday – Friday at noon, in a drive-through fashion.
“We miss our Spring Break Campers and the Biloxi families that would visit the pool during their Spring Break,” says Danielle Emery, Director of Kroc Center, “During these difficult times, we know that feeding your child is a priority. We are here to be good stwerads and do the most good with what we have.”
Social workers are still providing the normal vital assistance to our community along with a rise of cases caused by COVID-19. Demands have increased from individuals that are now without work, and staff has trained on the new guidelines, streamlining the process to help as many families as possible during this critical time.
The Salvation Army is ensuring that people have access to food and desperately needed services including drive-through food box pickup, community-based food delivery, and other vital support at all social service locations.
