with the PROJECT, but wanted to share a story I was told on my local bus by an older retired gentleman. We have had general conversations over time on the bus because he is very hard of hearing. Today he began telling me he had a Costco baked chicken with him to take in the core area of the homeless camps. He was given permission by the manager of a Burger King in the area that allow the homeless to come in and get warm as long as they behave. On Christmas he prepared turkey, potatoes there and laid it out so they could have Christmas dinner!
We all can be heroes once in a while..Blessings All
Tomorrow I will deliver the last food items to the couple I have grown fond of over these many months. Saw Rick (Snaggertooth) Friday when I gave him his last packet of food, explaining that it was the last. To help him understand I wasn’t forsaking him but the funding had run out and I gave him a pack of sox left over.
This has been a beautiful journey and many of the homeless/hungry after talking with them wished me Blessings and thanked me. Waiting for my next assignment from Spirit..
Many thanks again for those who went on this journey with me, we could not have reached as many as we did without your love and compassion for those who have nothing..most of all a full stomach.
Blessings All until we meet again, Wennye’
final tally ( May 1, 2012 to March 25, 2013)
My beloved friend who was instrumental in getting this Project started..passed away Monday the 11th. Which is fitting for the end of the Project FEEDING THE HUNGRY, I will continue to keep his full name anonymous. Phil, my dear friend and buddy I miss knowing you are no longer on Earth. Though I realize we will meet again..to go over what the plan was and if we followed it once incarnated. See you later my sweet..
Blessings to All
His life he pushes down the street in his cart!
Lady was once a teacher in a private school and a couple of days turn 65. She has a lengthy story which hopefully changes for the good.!
Monday March 4, 2013- My Surprise there was Janice, freshly scrub and cleaned hair. However she is slighty unbalance with paranoia thinking, believing I could be with the CIA. After reassuring her I was not she allowed me to take her picture…we ladies do have our vain buttons don’t we. As I walked further I saw Rick across the street struggling with his cart, calling to him wasn’t working so I hurriedly crossed the street to his side. I gave him two packs which I rarely do but we miss each other so often I felt if we did not meet Tuesday he would be alright.
Tuesday March 5, 2013- Today I have an emergency and can not dispense food, if all goes well I plan to get back to routine Wednesday.
Wednesday March 6, 2013- Explained to the couple the project is coming to its end. Rick was out earlier today and got food before I had given them all out. Feeding more teens today who seem to have been on the streets for a while though they were new to me..they were so dirty and shoes well they barely had decent shoes on. Having withdrawal symptoms knowing it will be over very soon.
Thursday March 7, 2013- After returning from the hospital visiting a very sick friend, I grab my food cart and out the door. Bringing extra food hopefully I find people pretty quickly before the rain becomes stronger. Weather crappy, cold, damp but people are in good moods and pleased to get the food on a rainy day..all gone. Wish I had something hot to give them (sad face). Many on the street barely eat day- to- day have dogs and today I was asked if I had water for the dog after giving them food packs. I did’nt..they had to take care of ‘their’ dog if they made the decision to have one.
Friday March 8, 2013- Today is cold with a blistering wind, I want to get more pictures to end this week. Much too windy to stop for posing, people peek out from their dirty blanket or towels on their heads to shield their ears to take the food. Passing water out to every other person because I don’t have enough for all. I will give water to the older people first if I have enough at the time. Going in now.. wind is too much, tomorrow weather will be better so I will take food with me on my errands. Since the Project is almost finish I will feed a few this Saturday because Monday I have to visit a critically ill friend in the hospital.

Many more are turning up on our streets and with climate change in San Francisco it is brutal. Most I am coming across have colds and thanks to several women who donated recently will let me buy oranges so they get Vit. C.

Elderly man meeting me with all of his possessions in a grocery basket
The thumbnails show elders sleeping, carrying possessions in grocery baskets, man suffering with mental illness sitting at bus stop, young teens sleeping where they can on sidewalks as well restuarant bench. These are the people being fed with your donated dollars. Many aquaintances I know have said “Why don’t these people get a job?” I have answered this question again and again..Most of the people on the street are damage, hungry, dirty, sick etc. When you have a simple cold how do you feel..do you need a day off?? How about when hungry before you can get to lunch or home?? When you are emotionally stress do you function? These people live this each and every day getting worse every one of the days.
Many have to sleep during the day because at night they are rob and or beaten.

Reluctant to take the picture but changed his mind
</ While out delivering food I have looked for Janice the schoolteacher who was last seen holding a handwritten sign saying she was "dying". Two characters who received food decided to pose for me.
