When a client began crying onto the shoulder of James Baird, he cried with him. The director of operations for Main Street Ministries in Winston County will never forget that moment.

“It hit hard, when people are crying they don’t have any food,” Baird said. “One lady gave us her address as the side of Highway 78. Many are homeless because this county does not have enough public housing. When they cry, I feel like crying also. I don’t believe in anyone going hungry.
