MORGANTOWN -

For the second year, the Wesley United Methodist Church in Morgantown held it's community Mardi Gras Lunch Sunday.

Lunch was straight from the Bayou, featuring homemade jambalaya, gumbo, potato salad, and more.

Many local business assisted by providing money for food, or the food itself.

The meal was free, but the church did ask for donations that went to support the Stop Hunger Now program.

"The way most of us live, is a long way from the way world lives. And I think we all have a responsibility to participate and help in places where help is needed. I think it's a big part of why we're here," says Jim Culberson of the Morgantown North Rotary Club.

Wesley United Methodist teamed up with Monongalia and Preston County Rotary clubs, raising money for Stop Hunger Now.

In April, the groups will come together to assemble what they hope is more than 25,000 meals to be sent to those in need.
