The number of people coming into the nonprofit (Sunday Breakfast Mission) shelter for a hot meal each night has more than doubled in the past year. Volunteers at the dining hall on North Poplar Street in Wilmington served 890 meals to needy men, women and children last month, compared with 398 meals in December 2007.
The reason is no mystery to the Rev. Thomas Laymon, who runs the mission.
“The doubling is very evident every night now,” he said. “And the answer is it has an economic reason behind it, because these are not just the homeless who are coming in.”
