My love of God, people and food connected me with the soup kitchen.  We would connect with Mr. Merle and give him left overs from weddings and other events we catered.   I have been the Director of the Daily Bread Ministries/Greer Soup Kitchen for 13 years.  We are here to serve, so always remember to be God’s Hands and Feet wherever you go.
