Friends in the Desert Foundation hosts meals for those in need

From Las Vegas-

On a winter afternoon, people are lining up 30 minutes early anticipating the doors to open at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church so they can enjoy a hot meal.

Patrons include some who are homeless and others who are just down on their luck.

No matter who they are and where they come from, the Friends in the Desert Foundation is there to serve them.

"People might say the economy is recovering," said Muriel Dufendach, secretary and facilities manager for the group. "You couldn't tell by this program."

Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and food is served at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 43 W. Pacific Ave. The group serves at 11:30 a.m. Saturdays and gives people a sack lunch to take with them since they don't operate Sunday.
