Providing Food For People Around The Plateau

In communities around the Cumberland Plateau, life under COVID-19 has complicated how to feed people in need.

But a partnership in Sewanee is meeting that challenge.

Thanks to a donation from the Rotary Club, the Community Action Committee - the outreach ministry of Otey Memorial Parish Church - uses a tray sealer machine to freeze repurposed food from the University of the South - and then distribute that food safely during the pandemic. 

The Rev. David Goodpaster is curate at the church - and Rick Wright is director of dining at the university.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
