EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) A partnership between the Carousel restaurant and the Salvation Army persists despite the coronavirus  pandemic.

The Carousel catered lunch for The Salvation Army’s soup kitchen Tuesday.

Volunteers in masks prepared spaghetti dinners in take-out boxes to help the hungry during the COVID-19 situation

Salvation Army officials say less elderly people are coming to the lunches and using other services, while more families are taking advantage of the service.

“We’ve seen more families coming to the salvation army, children as well, coming to the lunches everyday. The numbers have increased, probably the highest numbers we’ve seen since the recession back in 2008,” said Major Mark Turner.

The Salvation Army says it needs volunteers in the soup kitchen and food pantry.
