An area organization is suspending their lunch program for the needy.

The Bridge of Lubbock, a privately-funded Christian non-profit organization run in East Lubbock, is suspending their “Feed the Mind” program, which has served more than 7,000 meals.

Friday will mark the last day of serving meals to the homeless and low-income families.

“If we are able to find an organization to take ownership of the program by providing volunteers and financial support, the lunch could be offered again in the fall,” said outgoing Executive Director Mayda Muniz.

A press release from the organization says that The Bridge has seen a significant decrease in monetary donations, forcing them to focus solely on their main outreach, Bridge 2 Success.

Bridge 2 Success is a free mentoring program for at-risk youth in grades 6-12.
