Every day, Emmaus House in Downtown Savannah feeds warm meals to around 150 people in their dining hall. Volunteers help serve them, and everyone who arrives for a meal gets one. But that process looks a little different these days.
“We just hand out these bags through our kitchen door. And that way we don't have clients inside,” said Ariana Berksteiner, the soup kitchen’s executive director.
Much of the advice to stop coronavirus, such as avoiding others, washing hands and sanitizing surfaces, might be tough to follow for those who don’t have homes or rely on services like soup kitchens. On top of that, outreach groups like Emmhaus House are feeling the strain of supply shortages and strict health precautions.
