365 days a year, the Salvation Army’s Frontline Feeding program in Springfield serves meals to the homeless.
"We serve that lunch rain, sunshine or snow, pandemics, whatever," said Jeff Smith, a spokesman for the Salvation Army in Springfield. He says in more typical years, that program has provided a seated, hot lunch indoors. But once the pandemic struck, the organization had to figure out how to serve the meals while also staying safe and keeping in line with local ordinances.
So they quickly switched to lunches to-go, like a carry-out service.
