The Mannington Food Pantry has served the North Marion County area for more than 25 years.
Now it wants to do even more.
The pantry has taken more than five months to renovate and transform a building in Mannington into a soup kitchen.
All of the materials were donated, and volunteers provided the labor.
The Community Reaching Out Serving Soup, or CROSS, serves a free meal to the hungry every Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
