KINGSPORT, Tenn. (Oct. 2, 2016) -- Two local churches in Kingsport joined together in the fight against hunger on Sunday. Dozens of volunteers from Cassidy United Methodist Church and Salem United Methodist Church bagged green beans for families in need.

"We're smaller churches, we have about 130, 140 at church on Sunday per church,” said Lewis Kizer, pastor at Salem United Methodist Church. “But when we get together we can make a lot of work a lot easier. I'm really happy that we are doing this."

Hunger is an important issue in our area with one in five people living in poverty in East Tennessee, and it's not the first time the two churches have worked together to feed the community. Last  year they bagged sweet potatoes. This year it was all about green beans, but they didn't get quite as many beans as they wanted.
