HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg Christian ministry which helps the homeless is continuing its efforts to feed the needy on weekends and holidays and Saturday, a local restaurant and employees from WDAM-TV dropped by to help.  

A lunch at the Field House for the Homeless was provided by Cotton Blues restaurant. It fed several dozen folks. 

The meals were served by volunteers from WDAM.  

The Field House for the Homeless was founded in 2013 by sisters Cynthia Young and Priscilla Brown to help the chronically homeless and other folks in need.   

"We saw the need for people who are really hungry on the weekend and on holidays, so that is definitely a major gap that we're trying to fill in and we're just trying to get the community to embrace what we're doing," said Cynthia Young.    

"We're needing more help," said Priscilla Brown. "We're hoping the community will come and step up with different organizations and other groups to fill in the gap," she said.  

If your restaurant or business would like to host a meal or provide volunteers, you can call the Field House for the Homeless at 601-325-4808.
