Fayetteville church serving meals to those affected by Hurricane Matthew


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A church in Fayetteville is helping the community by giving out food and water to those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

Cars have been stopping by Manna Church non-stop to get meals on Tuesday

More than 300 Manna Church members have been passing out BBQ chicken, beans, fruit and water to everyone who stops by.

They are expecting to feed the first 4,000 people alone for dinner.

This started at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday with a joint effort between the church and Operation BBQ Relief.

CBS North Carolina talked with one mother who has to evacuate her home in Lumberton.

“I’m just appreciative because people took the time out of their lives to look after us,” she said. “God is good. I’ll tell anybody that. God is good.”

The church has already served more than 1,500 people for lunch from several areas including Fayetteville, Lumberton and Spring Lake.

Manna Church has plans to continue serving food throughout the rest of the week.
