I helped drop off a delivery at the food & care last year around Christmas time. There were people there sorting through boxes of clothing and other items that had been donated for their use. I remember being struck by a beautiful little Asian Family. Usually when we think of homelessness we think of a single man or woman on the streets but we often don't think of children and families. Well, here was a family that was being served by this organization. It was striking to see the gratitude they had to find a helping hand and their happiness in receiving warm clothing to dress their children for properly for the cold winter months. This moment will stay with me forever. We need to do all we can to reach out to members of our community that are in unexpected circumstances, dire circumstances. And this organization is doing just that. One precious life at a time.

I feel that the Food & Care coalition does an effective job of providing for those who need help while maintaining the highest level of dignity for their clients. The ability to receive aid in exchange for community service gives their clients such a lift in self worth that I feel their formula is magic.
