Newport News church feeds people Wednesday night

NEWPORT NEWS, Va (WAVY) – Hundreds of people will sleep Wednesday night on a full stomach thanks to a Newport News church.

Living Waters Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ delivered 350 meals Nov. 26. And 10 On Your Side took a look inside the operation.

“To us it means everything to reach out to a community,” said pastor Eric Jackson. “Especially a community that you’re born and reared up in. And so we not only just do this once a year but we do it every other week trying to feed and reach out to the community.”

The church is also looking for clothing donations.

“I think it’s very good,” said Robert Redmond Jr., who received a food donation. “Very gracious for people to come out like this to show love for other people. It’s good.”
