Although COVID-19 forced Wellspring Interfaith Social Services to suspend all non-essential programs, the organization has been working non-stop to lend a hand to those in need and keep its population's food insecurity at bay.

Located at 1316 Broadway in Fort Wayne's historic West Central Neighborhood, Wellspring has been actively providing assistance and support city-wide for 52 years.

For a look at what this entails, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Wellspring's executive director, Melissa Rinehart, to discuss the rising needs this year's excessive challenges have created and the resulting community effort.
