Cumming Police serve up soup to seniors
The City of Cumming Police Department has announced a team-up with City Police Department partners, Marie's Italian Deli, to deliver meals to the elderly, "Soups for Seniors",
Through the initiative, police officers will deliver homemade soups made by the staff at Marie's Italian Deli to residents 65 and older inside city limits.
The Cumming Police Department wrote in a post on their social media page to let recipients know that the soup will be delivered in patrol vehicles. They say, "we don't want anyone with a heart condition worrying that their youthful days in the 60s had finally caught up to them!!"
If you or someone you know is interested in need of a meal, you're asked to call Karen Marie at 678-725-9291. Recipients will have the choice of a quart-size serving of Tuscan white bean and ham or tomato basil soup.
