Church member puts heart and soul into Alabama food pantry
The Press-Register in Mobile, Ala., reports:
BAYOU LA BATRE, Alabama – Daphne German always figured that by the time she was 70 years old, she’d be done with hard work. “I’d walk on the beach like the old ladies with the floppy hats,” said German, a great-grandmother who gets up every day at dawn to ready the food pantry at the Hemley Road Church of Christ in Bayou La Batre.
As a founder of Bayou Recovery, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the people of south Mobile County with construction and food, German believes that the restoration of Bayou La Batre, beaten down by Hurricane Katrina and the oil spill, is far from over.
Four mornings a week, folks line up at the pantry for a box of food. A truck ministry takes food to shut-ins.
