Guests enjoying meal

Dozens of people on Monday attended King’s Kitchen anniversary celebration. 

Volunteers and guests of the King's Kitchen on Monday celebrated the soup kitchen's 6th anniversary. Central Bible Church pastor Mike Ramsey said that on Nov. 19, 2012, the kitchen served baked chicken and green beans to about 35 people. "During that six years later, we've served more than 145,000 meals," Ramsey said. King's Kitchen serves meals six days a week and serves about 90 to 100 people a day in a restaurant-style setting where guests are served their meal, Ramsey said. The kitchen is a non-profit outreach of Central Bible Church, he added. Ramsey also handed out a stack of certificates to organizations and individuals that help the kitchen on a daily basis. "We appreciate the support of so very many in the community," Ramsey said, "including the Silver Slipper Casino and to the cities of Bay St. Louis and Waveland. We also thank the Waveland and Bay St. Louis police and fire departments. Finally, nothing would be possible if it wasn't for hardworking people like Rev. Connie Lyons, our outreach pastor at the kitchen." Children from Steep Hollow Baptist Church's Awana group in Poplarville on Monday volunteered to serve. Laiya Fazende, 8, said the King's Kitchen is a restaurant that feeds people that need to be fed. "I'm serving because I want everyone to be healthy," 7-year-old Phoebe Trumbach said. "This is my first time serving. I like it and I like helping people." Aubrey Trumbach, 8, said she wants to come back to King's Kitchen and serve again." Students from St. Stanislaus College and youth from Central Bible Church also volunteered during the celebration. King's Kitchen is located at 2005 Longfellow Rd. in Bay St. Louis and serves meals Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Learn more about the soup kitchen through Facebook at the King's Kitchen.
