Lauderdale Outreach and Volunteer Effort, Inc., known as LOVE's
Kitchen, is a nonprofit, charitable organization formed for the express
purpose of feeding the hungry in Meridian and Lauderdale County, MS.
Judge Billy Neville founded L.O.V.E.'s kitchen and charged that
no person who entered our door for a meal would be refused based on his
or her circumstances. He felt that even people who had jobs could have
situations, such as medical expenses, which would limit their ability to
purchase food between pay periods. It is on this premise that we have
built our service of feeding the hungry. LOVE's Kitchen has been in
operation since the 1980's and is supported by businesses, churches and
individuals in our community.
