Lions Club feeds Falkville residents

For three consecutive weeks, the Falkville Lions Club has stepped up to provide sack lunches to those in need. Partnering with the Carpenter’s Cabinet, a resource for those in the area who are food insecure, the Lions Club haprovided hamburgers, hotdogs and potato chips to more than four dozen people.  

Lions Club president Terry Nappier said the club’s goal is to locate needs and serve the community. “Our focus is to serve where there’s a need, and we saw a need there since the schools had taken a break from providing meals while there’s a shelter-at-home order,” Nappier said. “We had a great response last week; we ran out of meals.”  

Nappier said whether the Lions Club will continue to provide meals for people in Falkville will be decided once new information is provided by the state. The shelter-at-home order is set to expire April 30.  

He said the money to provide the sack lunches was raised by the Lions Club, and dessert for all the meals was provided by Simply Delicious in Decatur.
