Wow! It’s been a crazy 2 weeks, as the national stage has taken us to task. However, while the chais was being tended to, we were busy doing what we do. It’s a privilege to serve, and we’re all born with this privilege, the privilege of choice. So as we wait to see what policies will become the new norm, we must stay a steady course and maintain. Having expert rise in the numbers of individuals we serve, we have taken measures to increase our output without increasing our overhead substantially. By returning to a previous option, we have once again added a cold cereal option to our breakfast program, fresh picked oranges to both routes, hot beverages for breakfast, and we’ve invested in stronger bags, to avoid the need of doubling them up! Ultimately, all of these measures will help us to grow responsibly and with financial feasibility! Lastly, on Saturday the 16th we served red beans and rice, as we are trying to introduce more home cooking into our lunch program, since it’s been so well received in our breakfast program. So we shall see! It’s been a very promising start to the new year for the MLKHP, and for that we are grateful. So moving forward, we will continue to grow responsibly and respectfully, and we encourage all to get involved in healthy pursuits and causes. Til next time, stay safe and stay kind! Love always wins.
