Youth LEAP Interns Volunteer to serve at Loaves and Fishes

Leap LogoClarksville, TN – January 21st, 2012, the LEAP Youth Interns volunteered to support Loaves and Fishes in serving the hungry. Loaves and Fishes serves between 150-200 meals daily to the hungry six days a week and distributes food to area agencies through volunteer efforts.

The Loaves and Fishes staff expressed their appreciation to the LEAP volunteers for preparing beef stew, serving the food, and cleaning up.

“It was kinda bitter sweet seeing how much they liked the beef stew we made for them. One hand, I took pride in seeing them come back up for seconds and compliment us on it. On the other hand I was a little disappointed because I didn’t get to taste any. Thankfully, Mrs Garrett taught us the recipe and is going to make us a private stash” commented Austin Wills, one of the LEAP Youth Interns.

Loaves and Fishes’ “Soup Kitchen” serves meals between 10:30am and 12:00pm, Monday through Saturday.  Donations are taken 8:00am to noon Monday-Saturday at the 215 Foster Street location.
