The Onslow Soup Kitchen is one of nine grand prize winners in the national Citgo Fueling Good Program.
The soup kitchen will receive a $5,000 gas card to fuel vehicles to pick-up food donations and deliver meals to needy families throughout Onslow County.
It's the second time in three years the soup kitchen has won the gas cards said Don Herring, chairman of Onslow Community Outreach.
Herring said, "The success of the soup kitchen in this national campaign illustrates the tremendous amount of community support for the program and its value to the Onslow community."
The soup kitchen reduces hunger by preparing and serving 100 lunch meals Monday through Friday; delivering 1,000 soup and sandwich meals to the rural areas of Onslow County weekly; and distributing approximately 130 boxes of food to families during a monthly food bank.
