Some Minden churches are working to provide an encouraging environment and nutritional meals for children who might be in need this summer.
Mt. Zion C.M.E. Temple, Mt. Calm Baptist Church, St. Rest Baptist Church and Greater St. Paul Baptist Church are serving free meals to any child 0 to 18 years of age.
Marilyn Griffin of Mt. Zion said on average they feed 75 children during their evening meal.
