Will of God Ministries has begun a daily feeding program in Coushatta. Their pastor, Dr. Johnny Cox said the purpose is to feed children and to deliver hot meals to their homes.
The first shipment of hot meals arrived about 11:30 am on Wednesday, March 25th. It was delivered to Coushatta by Simple Church of Shreveport-Bossier. Bryan Reed and Bill McConathy from the church brought a pickup loaded with hot and cold food containers. McConathy said they are delivering the food that is prepared by the Northwest Louisiana Food Bank.
Dr. Cox told The Journal, “Church volunteers are assembling the meals. We are delivering them to neighborhoods. Initially the meals will be delivered every day. Later we will arrange for meal pick-up.”
Cox said people from Will of God Ministries are volunteering right now. He said, “Anyone who would like to help, call the church at 932-3177. We need additional people to lend a hand.”
On this first day of distributing the meals, Cox added, “We are in the infant stage and we’re figuring it out as we go.”
