Disciples Kitchen, a coalition of churches and community organizations in Waynesboro, feeds hundreds of hungry people in the city each week through a soup kitchen.

Disciples Kitchen started four years ago when it was discovered that no soup kitchen served the Waynesboro area.

The group originally started with 7 churches in 2007, but has since grown to 36 as of 2011.

Each church provides volunteers and food for the soup kitchens, that are offered four times a week.

Lunch is served on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in the fellowship hall at the Second Presbyterian Church and breakfast is served on Saturdays at Basic United Methodist Church.

Rev. John McDonald of Second Presbyterian Church says they typically serve about 60 people per meal, but they've had as many as 111 at one time.

Rev. McDonald says, "We've seen all kinds of levels of hunger. Anything from completely homeless people to people that are just living on the edge that sometimes it comes down to do we fix the car, do we go to the doctor or do we eat?"
