Burglars steal church charity food

Someone broke into a church and stole charity food intended for the needy, Decatur police said Wednesday.

The burglars broke two windows at Foster Outreach Apostolic Church, 737 Wilson St. N.W., sometime Monday or Tuesday, police said.

They stole bags of french fries, chicken fingers and chicken breasts, boxes of popcorn, blocks of cheese and boxes of juice. The total amount and value of the stolen items were not immediately known.

"What's so bad about it is we give the food away to people and the guys come steal it. I don't understand why someone would steal food we'll give you anyway. ... Anybody that needs food can come by here and if they meet the qualifications, we'll give food to them," said the Sammy Foster, pastor of the 16-member church.
