Good food, good cause: Mo Jones opened Anointed BBQ & Soul Food at 2504 West Hampden Road three months ago — but keeping the fires burning hasn't kept him from his commitment to the community. The founder of Hedges & Highway Outreach Ministries, which helps youth and homeless individuals, Jones held a November Neighborhood Service Day outside the restaurant on Sunday, November 13, and photographer Danielle Lirette was there to capture the good times.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
