TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Some local organizations are scaling back operations because of COVID-19, but City Walk Urban Mission in Tallahassee is doing the exact opposite.

City Walk Urban Mission works with the homeless and individuals in crisis.

Five weeks ago, they were planning to close their doors. Instead, they decided to not only stay open but provide a daily meal, instead of weekly, to our homeless community.

"We didn't have anything where we provided lunches where you can just take and go," said Renee Miller, City Walk Urban Mission director. "You're not a client of ours, just come and we're going to feed you. Other than that, Tuesday night with about 50 people, we didn't have anything. Now, we're feeding 50-60 people everyday at lunch."

Three dollars is the cost to feed someone in need.

City Walk isn't funded by grants or any government aid. They rely on individual donations and sales from their thrift store, which is currently closed.
