PART TWO: The Dunning Family Mixes Ministry With Meals

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - It was a whirlwind of excitement for the Dunning Family, when the Extreme Makeover team came knocking on their door one year ago. Since then, it's been a roller coaster ride. First the gut wrenching news that they couldn't work out of their newly built kitchen, then came the exhaustion from their old routine. A 20 minute ride back and forth in their haggard van, just so they can continue to serve food to the hungry.

"It's just a little tough sometimes. I am up now even earlier. I used to get up at 2 a.m., now I am up at 12:15," said Dale Dunning, founder of Jusst Sooup.

Once breakfast and lunch is served, Dale and her husband Ken can finally catch their breath in their beautiful home. She has a place called her "chapel area" where she finds relaxation. Ken has his own personalized diner, that serves as his little man cave.

Between the two spaces, they've been able to drum up a new plan for their unused space.

"We cant have a soup kitchen, so we're going to turn this building into a church," said Ken Dunning, Dale's Husband.

"The church is going to be nice. Not too early in the morning, and we can get up at regular time like 7 or 8 o'clock," said their son Brooks Dunning.

This way, they can go forth with their ultimate plan to serve food right out of their Jusst Sooup Kitchen. When asked if they could go back in time, and do anything differently, Dale had just one answer.

"If I could change anything it would be the hearts of the people."

Ken says the building is already zoned for a church. Right now, they're working on getting the permits and bringing the building up to code. They're hoping to see the church up and running by October.
