Hello MLKHP friends! We’ve been out of pocket for couple of weeks, but now we’re back in action. On Tuesday morning we resumed service to our friends in Vallejo, CA. With cinnamon raisin oatmeal or egg and cheese wraps to choose from, we also provided hot coffee, toiletries, BOMBAS socks, and much, much more. The highlights of the day weren’t the mini reunions, but rather the awesome conversations we shared with our friends. It’s absolutely integral to the success of our program, for us to develop and maintain honest, loving, and most importantly, consistent relationships with our friends. After the breakfast service was complete, it was apparent that we would need to increase our meal count moving forward, for both the breakfast and the lunch programs. So with that, we are anticipating a heavy presence, numbers wise, of individuals seeking what we have to offer, and as a result, we will be more than prepared for the challenges this uptick in numbers may present. In addition to our wonderful sack lunches we are also serving fiesta beans with chicken, as an little something extra. Until then, stay kind and stay involved! Peace and God Bless!

HealthY START BREAKFAST PROGRAM
For the month of April we experienced a lot of movement from our recipients from week to week. However, we found that our numbers were increasing while our familiarity with everyone we served, was somewhat decreasing. We attribute that to the issuance of the stimulus checks, coupled with the various county programs, such as Project Roomkey, for the shift in who we are encountering. We still managed to do our thing and have realized the importance of staying the course. Here’s an overview of the HSBP for the month of April!
SACK LUNCH PROGRAM
This month’s Sack Lunch Program outings were very involved, due to our continued distribution of MLK. Family & Friends Program membership cards and the activation of initiatives surrounding that particular “sub” program. It was the second month of card distribution, and for every card not claimed in May, we will put those cards in a suspended state and file them away. Doing so will allow us to make space for individuals who would like to sign up and participate now. Since we are limited to 100 active participants because we’re a mobile service, we can’t responsibly increase those numbers until we have a building to also operate from. With the logistics of this rollout still working itself out, it’s safe to say that it has been quite a successful endeavor thus far. Here’s an overview of the SLP activities this month!
