The Lord’s Supper Soup Kitchen Mobile Ministry will be making a stop in Louisville this weekend as part of its summer outreach.

The ministry, whose mission is to feed the hungry with natural and spiritual food and provide programs that help toward self-sufficiency, will set up from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Salvation Army, 911 S. Brook St., Louisville.

Joyce and Terriance Hamilton created the ministry. They travel to different areas giving those in need the opportunity to pick up a hot meal, clothes, shoes and more, as well as enjoy a gospel concert and hear about God’s love.

“We live by the spirit,” she said.

Saturday is the ministry’s second opportunity in two years to serve at The Salvation Army in Louisville, which assists people in emergency shelters and transitional housing.

Joyce said The Salvation Army serves roughly 250 people every night.

“The need is just great. ... We can’t do everything. We just want to give them hope and love on them. Let them know they aren’t forgotten,” she said.

Joyce also said the ministry still is collecting items to hand out to residents in need as it continues its summer outreach. Items include gently used spring and summer clothing for adults, deodorant, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, wet wipes, combs, brushes, lotion, Vaseline, shampoo, new socks for the homeless, non-perishable foods and canned goods.

They also accept monetary donations. Checks can made out to The Lord’s Supper Soup Kitchen Mobile Ministry. Tax-exempt receipts are provided. Donations can be sent by mail to P.O. Box 552 in Elizabethtown.

The summer outreach started in April and continues through August. Donations will be accepted throughout the campaign.
