Cornerstone Baptist Church’s Cornerstone Community Kitchen provides meals to the homeless Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Long a beacon of light to South Dallas, this church knows how to multiply modest resources into colossal gains. As COVID-19 has challenged it in ways as unprecedented as the pandemic itself, Cornerstone has doubled down on its work. Before the pandemic, the church’s kitchen served 175 to 200 meals, mainly to the homeless, five days a week. At the height of the pandemic, volunteers were handing out 450 “grab and go” food kits, many to people who were first-timers “who never dreamed of being in a soup line.” Volunteers and church members staff the Kitchen.
