BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) - God's Kitchen in Battle Creek will start serving dinner on Monday again starting next week.
The soup kitchen was forced earlier this month to cut meal services from four days a week to two days a week -- Tuesday and Wednesday -- because it had raised only $31,000 of its $75,000 goal.
But after a $1,000 donation from the Ceresco Baptist Church, which also came with a truckload of food on July 24, the soup kitchen decided it would be able to start serving meals on Monday evenings again.
That donation, plus more from churches, corporations and private donors, brought God's Kitchen's fundraising total to $40,000, according to a Tuesday evening press release.
The return of Monday evening meals is expected Aug. 5.
God's Kitchen also hopes to start serving Thursday dinner again by Sept. 2, when school starts back up.
