…said a client rushing in the door just before 11 am. How often do we hear that? She came for advice & guidance, but also for the food. Others come for the books & Becky’s help in finding the proper reading level & books that might get them reading like the granddaughter of one of our volunteers who was reading below her grade level. With Becky’s help, she is now reading on the appropriate level. Her grandmother did come for the food along with cat food. Some come for prayers for healing & the food. Some come for the community & a place to share stories of their past week while waiting for the food. Some come to talk to representatives from Legal Aid & Dr. Yum & The VA Cooperative Extension while they wait for the food. This week we will have fresh field greens to share. Like all of our clients, we have been waiting for the fields to start producing.
On March 10 from 12 pm – 2 pm in Sydnor, we will be putting together family meal packs for students in the Fredericksburg schools as we kick off off our partnership with the Micah churches and Stafford Food Security. Please join us in our new St. George’s venture working with the Fredericksburg schools to provide meals to families in need.
As Carey so often says, the food is just a reason for us to get together. Peace – Linda
