The needs include oatmeal, milk, sausage, eggs, biscuits and cereal.
Director of Development Amelia Heatherly said the need is a never-ending cycle, and the amount of people the shelter is feeding is growing.
“We do want to make it known that the community has responded in a very generous way, and we have received items and are blessed,” she said. “But there is always a need.”
The mission has about 160 people staying on site, but it also feeds people who are not staying there, she said. The kitchen goes through 60 to 90 dozen eggs a day.
“We are shocked at the response that we’ve received from the community,” Heatherly said. “I’ve never seen anything like this from one post.”
