County soup kitchen offers carry-out meals Feb. 11

Published 9:14am Monday, February 11, 2013

Polk County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with Tryon Fire Department will host a soup kitchen on Monday, Feb. 11 at the Polk County Sheriff’s Office from 4-6 p.m.

Organizers hope to provide citizens with a warm meal so they may be able to spend more time with their families without having to be in the kitchen. It is also offered for those who may not be as fortunate as others when it comes to meals and the ones who are shut-in and cannot get out for a good hot meal.

These will be carry-out orders consisting of potato soup, chili beans, corn bread and crackers. Any organizations that may have large orders are asked to place orders by noon on Feb. 11.

Deliveries are available or can be picked up at the sheriff’s office, which is located at 40 Ward Street in Columbus. The soup is free, however donations are accepted. All donations will be placed in the Help the Needy Fund.
