Since I’m back two months early from my Alaska paddle plans, I’m now shifting my attention to bringing some nutritious meals to the hungry people who live on our streets. I’ve been knocking on restaurant and grocery doors in an effort to involve others. Three restaurants have agreed to help us out with a pot of soup or rice. Thank you! (You know who you are.) My goal is to have a soup van deliver hot soup to the homeless once a week on Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo, and Kingston. I’m shooting for the first of October. (It’ll be getting cold about then.)
I’m not trying to feed everyone. Rather, I’m trying to make a one-on-one connection with some of these folks. When they ask, “How did you get off the street?” I get to tell my story.
