Group plans to feed needy families

by Billy Crosby

Community Table, a new non-profit organization focusing on hunger in the Rockbridge Area, plans to provide three to five meals each week to families in need.

Director of Public Relations David Wolfe says that Community Table has raised about $50,000 so far. The Rockbridge Area Relief Association food pantry provides a similar service, but Wolfe said he thinks that the groups will work together to help more families in need.

Community Table also will have local chefs teach residents how to cook their own meals. The organization hopes to serve its first meal by the beginning of next year.
