Angels and Sparrows serves a nourishing lunch to all who need help, Monday-Friday, 11a.m.-1p.m. Delivery to home-bound recipients is arranged on a case-by-case basis.
Angels and Sparrows works with Solomon House in Huntersville to determine the need for home deliveries. The soup kitchen is at 514 N. Old Statesville Road behind New Friendship Presbyterian Church.
The organization is also looking for volunteers and donations. They will accept money, food and other items.
Angels and Sparrows currently need canned stocks of all kinds (chicken, beef, vegetable), canned fruit and vegetables, and gallon-size tea bags. They also need paper products such as dessert plates, soup bowls, paper towels and freezer bags.
