The Salvation Army corps assembles and serves restaurant meals for the community twice a week. This effort provides about 100 meals per day in partnership with the “Love Local, Buy Suffolk” initiative. As cars drive alongside the building, volunteers from a neighboring church, The Mount Suffolk, safely hand over hot meals to hungry neighbors. One of those faithful Mount Suffolk volunteers is Jeffrey Johnson. Born and raised in Suffolk, Johnson considers himself a “people person.” He was ready to serve when the call for volunteers was made by his pastor, the Rev.
