The Black Goose and Wallaceburg’s Childs family are giving back once again, launching a delivery-style soup kitchen today.
The restaurant has been closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, but owner Mark Childs says they wanted to find a way to help those most in need in the community who’ve been left in the lurch.
The initiative aims to help those in need, hoping to feed 200 to 300 people each day, based on a list of residents compiled by area churches.
“There’s a strong need for people that had relied on the church and other venues to supply them with food, they’re not there now,” Childs says. “There’s definitely a need.”
The project kicks off today and will continue with deliveries on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week.
