Church Under The Bridge celebrated ten years of feeding the less-fortunate Sunday.

The group is a combined effort of more than a dozen congregations throughout Lexington. Every Sunday, they feed 100 to 250 people who need a hot meal and offer ministry to anyone who wants it.

"It lets us know that we're not out here alone. That God is always with us, no matter what our situations matter what situations we might be in," said Robert Godfrey, a volunteer with the organization.

As Stella Kidd, the co-director of the organization recalled,"We take up an offering every Sunday...we may have $10, $20. But as this man sat there, he said, 'I want to help,' and he stood. It took him a while--he wasn't really physically able to stand quickly--and he dug and dug and dug in the bottom of his pocket. He pulled out three pennies. That's when you go home and say, 'How else can I help?'."
