CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - During the summer months when many families are busy taking vacations, others are often times searching for the next meal.
Tonight's My Town Hero has gone above and beyond to make sure families in her community don't go hungry.
As the summer draws to an end, the need for food does not.
Hunger doesn't take a vacation, which is why all summer long, Mount Tabor UMC in Cabot has opened its doors to feed those in need.
"I've never been in a place where I did not know how I was going to feed my children at night and a lot of people we see have."
Twice a week, Eileen Poss and other church volunteers prepare brown bag lunches filled with anything from pizza to sandwiches and cookies...feeding over 350 people a week.
All of which, Eileen greets with a smile.
"She makes people feel welcome and comfortable."
