A local ministry and church provided dinner Friday night for a group of volunteers spending a week in Meridian.
LFW Ministries partnered with members of Agape Storehouse Fellowship Church to feed volunteers with World Changers.
This is the first time for a dinner of this type. Church members say it was an opportunity they did not want to miss.
"We saw an opportunity. We heard they were bringing in young people so we just thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to allow our young people to see them be a blessing to the community," says Linda Willis with LFW Ministries.
There are 229 volunteers in Meridian from World Changers. The church feed about 25 of the college-aged volunteers. Penn's Fish House donated the food for the dinner.
