ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Could crime force an Albany church volunteer program that feeds the hungry to close?   The Father's Kitchen was hit by burglars over the weekend.  

It operates in the old First Baptist Church building on Pine Avenue. The breakin was the third in four years. The pexiglass in a backdoor was pushed in.

A microwave, TV, stereo, garbage cans, and frozen meat, worth about one thousand dollars, were all stolen. Ministry leaders worry this crime could harm the many hungry people they help. 

"If it does continue I'll have to shut down," said Father's Kitchen Director Toni Grebel. "And I don't want to have to do that. We've been doing this, this is our 14th year. This is where our heart is, so we're hoping this will end it."

The Father's Kitchen feeds the hungry a full meal two Saturday's a month, and serves more than 150 meals to children after school four days a week through a Food Bank Program. They are totally funded by contributions.
