We started the week off with another successful Sunday and were preparing ourselves for a few days off when bam! 20 boxes of prepackaged lunches and snacks were offered on a day we’d normally be resting. Most of the items were perishable so what did we do? We went on Monday evening and gave out seven boxes worth of food, one item at a time. Our homies were stoked both by the surprise visit and the thoughtful way sandwiches were packaged with full sugar juices. ‘
On Wednesday, a second round of tuna sandwiches, yogurt snack packs, and muffin packs, made their way into the hungry bellies of our South Philadelphia friends, most of whom sleep outside because the shelter systems in Philadelphia are scarce and scary.
We love making surprise visits and would gladly expand our reach if we had more food and more capacity.
