Allen Temple A.M.E. Church held their feeding the community event on Saturday morning near Washington Avenue.
The Columbus organization has been feeding citizens hot lunches for little over a year now. Leaders say they have been able to provide the surrounding community with over 400 meals in that time. They also deliver food to nearby shelters and nursing homes.
Church members say it is important that people in the community are fed both physically and spiritually.
Leaders echo this saying their ministry is all about connecting people to god, people to people, and people to the community.
