Five Thousand Pounds of Pasta

November 26th, 2011

11-26-11The San Francisco Food Bank volunteers know no day off. Over 100 individuals took the time during their Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, to fill the need of those who are hungry. Parents and children came out together today, and filled over 2 1/2 tons of pasta noodles into family-size bags.
Eleazao who came by himself today, volunteered at the morning and afternoon sessions. He wanted to give back to his community; he doesn’t like to see anyone go hungry. Three women from Team Pink also joined in, helping to address the array of needs of others.
Rich, one of the SFFB workers told me of his family’s Thanksgiving day tradition. They made 50 extra meals at their house. They then travel to some of the areas that are too far of a walk from the soup kitchens for some of the homeless. They had no problem at all finding 50 people in need.
After the double session today, I headed to the crowded downtown streets of San Francisco, once again the parking gods saw to it that my needs were met; I parked right in front of the Ferry Building.
