Ministry feeds community body & spirit

Posted: Updated:

Lubbock Impact is helping those in need and keeping community members fed amid the pandemic.

"We do have a lot more people that are finding themselves in need of a soup kitchen and they never thought they'd need our services," Lubbock Impact Executive Director Rory Thomas said.

While losing many volunteers when school for Texas Tech went to online and elderly now staying home, they are doing their best to continue serving. Every other week Lubbock Impact sends invites out to community members for it's drive thru soup kitchen.

"We ask them not just to let us know if they're coming that day, but we're checking on them mentally, spiritually, economically, we have financial advisers set up, we have counselors and pastors set up," Thomas said.

It also offers services like the free Medical Clinic that is still open for established patients in person and the spiritual growth and children's ministries through ZOOM chats.

"This is what we're here for and we rejoice that we can help," Thomas said.

Thomas said she's seen the ones who need the most help are single mothers and grandmothers who now have the kids at home.

"Let us help you with food so you can use your food money to go towards your utilities," Thomas said.

Lubbock Impact plans to continue the drive thru method after regulations are lifted.

"Sometimes the food itself is not going to cure a problem, but it might lift their spirits for the day," Thomas said.
