Family helps Manna House feed the hungry on Thanksgiving Day

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – As many families prepare dinner, a local family begins their Thanksgiving with a mission to help feed the hungry.

“I have tears in my eyes just thinking of someone going without when I have the capacity to give to them. so that’s my heart, i love serving the community, ”said Steven Langford.

The Langfords have served and volunteered with the Manna House Mission in Huntsville for almost a decade.

“My wife, mother, and five of our children are here to serve the Lord because that’s what we love to do. it’s in our hearts.

About 100 volunteers from the Manna House Mission were in the kitchen guided by chef Bruce Roy.

For over twenty years, the Mission has served hundreds of meals to feed the hungry in the Huntsville area on Thanksgiving Day.

This year, according to Chef Bruce, a record number of more than 1,000 meals are served in his kitchen.

“It is very vital, especially these days with the pandemic, that the elderly be locked in and this year we have had a very, big increase in the demand for meals from veterans. These are just people who find out we’re doing it and want to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner. “

The Manna House says that the fact that over a thousand people are fed on Thanksgiving Day means that the mission of feeding the hungry must continue.
