Thursday Feb. 21, 2013- Stepped off the bus and there were people looking for me. Several came to get food for themselves and others in their ‘posse’. I had to turn away spokespersons as I needed to reach others before the packs were gone. At the end of two blocks.. all gone. Before reaching my bus stop to return home I must have said 8 times “I’m sorry it is all gone, will look for you tomorrow.” Need to map out another path so not to be ambushed when getting off the bus.
Friday Feb. 22, 2013- Holding on to a food pack for Snaggertooth Rick, promise I would look for him since I ran out Thursday. Checked in on the couple to give them toiletries not needing food that day but was told Monday their food stamps will be out and will need food. Must pick up food and supplies this weekend for the next week, someone is calling me by “hey lady” it’s Frankie wanting food and water. Don’t see Rick have his pack left and I have passed up several people who needed food, can’t wait for him any longer..have to give it away. Well well as I waited for my bus to take me home I see Rick, didn’t have a sandwich just oranges, chips and water from grocery shopping for the Project. Explained to him the time and days I am out on the streets as well as it is his responsibility to reach me before others are fed. We shall see Monday if he understood..
