Valdosta - A South Georgia county is getting big bucks to help feed the hungry.

Lowndes County received a $498,000.00 community block development grant from the state of Georgia. The money will be used to renovate and buy new equipment for the community soup kitchen.

"The county has provided the facility but there's still many needs there so this money will take care of the rest of their needs for the soup kitchen as well as provide them with some updated and new equipment that they need to be able to service more clients and to take better care of the ones that they have now," said Paige Dukes.

The money will also help renovate the library used by Lowndes Associated Ministries to the People in the Lela Ellis Building.
