Residents still without power because of the winter storm will have a place in Georgetown County to grab a free meal.

Georgetown County Emergency Management coordinated with relief agencies to provide the meals, which will continue to be served until power is restored, according to a news release.

About 6,100 homes in Georgetown County are still without power. Emergency management officials had received calls from residents asking for food and bottled water because the food in their refrigerators had spoiled without electricity.

Officials expect to serve about 150 meals daily.

The first meal will be served at noon Sunday at Northwest Regional Recreation Center, 8189 Choppee Road in Georgetown. Dinner will be served at three locations: Northwest Regional Recreation Center, Ringle Heights Baptist Church at 78 Ruben Avenue and Sampit Park, 495 Powell Road.

Starting Monday, meals will be served at 8 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. at the three locations.

The meals are provided by South Carolina Baptist Convention Disaster Relief, the Salvation Army and Georgetown County government.
