BALTIMORE — Community members are providing food for those who are most vulnerable.

Soul Harvest Ministries in West Baltimore collected food for seniors who either can't get to the grocery store or may just be too afraid to go.

Seniors drive up to the church and open their trunks, then volunteers come and load them up with food.

"We're only here for a couple of hours to make sure the people especially the senior citizens here in Baltimore have a place a safe place where they don't have to interact with people and still get the food and the nourishment that they need," said Merrill Griffin, Pastor of Soul Ministries.

Pastor Griffin said they'll serve about 100 people.

He credits their partnership with the Maryland Food Bank and other food corporations for making it possible.
