I had the opportunity to help serve at a kitchen for those who cannot afford enough food on Tuesday. ”The Banquet” in Sioux Falls serves 9 meals a week to those dollar doesn’t make it far enough to cover their expenses. Our church raised the money for the meal, cooked and served dinner for over 500, including over 100 children.
The clients were over all polite and clean. They were willing to talk to you, and were sometimes funny and usually cheerful.
Many of the kids and a few of the adults made a trip to the reading table before they ate. Magazines and books of all types were taken out for reading. We had a few toys along and they also disappeared.
It is distressing to me that we have people in this country who cannot make enough money to pay for their meals. This land of opportunity has passed up so many. We all must do what we can to help. Please donate your time and your dollars to your local food shelf or kitchen. There are so many who need the help we can give.
