SPARTANBURG -- At least three organizations that provide food and help for the poor have been broken into in Spartanburg in the past several weeks.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports police have not made any arrests in the break-ins at Spartanburg Soup Kitchen, Greater Spartanburg Ministries or Second Presbyterian Church.

Spartanburg Soup Kitchen Director Lou Landrum said five grocery carts full of food have been stolen in three burglaries in the past three weeks.

Greater Spartanburg Ministries Director Kevin Koger said someone took $700 worth of chicken. He said if the suspect was hungry, all he had to do was ask for help.

The pastor of the church, the Rev. Steve Rhodes, said his building has been broken into three times in the past eight weeks.
